“Quad King” soon to be spotted on a quad near you

Written by

Winner of a bronze medal at the 2002 Olympics, figure skater Timothy Goebel, 25, (the first American to land a quadruple jump in competition, and the first skater in the world to land a quadruple salchow) is enrolling at GS this Fall. Now that he’s broken all the records, Goebel will strip off the flashy spandex to don a tailored suit. He plans to major in finance and pursue a career in investment banking.

At least he realized his childhood dream before selling out.

In other news, Columbia researchers have been paid close to $17 million to research arsenic.

And there’s a nasty squabble brewing at the J-school. Two editors quit managing a website associated with the Columbia Journalism Review after funding was cut in half to give more money to the print mag. New media proponents are outraged.

Thanks to Prem Mittal for the tips.

  1. welcome

    to your awkward introduction to columbia Tim!

  2. Keep it happy  

    Keep it snappy



    Keep it gay.

    I hope that, in the classroom and in walking around campus, figure skater Tim does everything with the flair and embellishment of a figure-skating routine. You know, every ordinary movement and act should be followed by a slight by unmistakable little flourish.

    He's going to be disappointed to learn that there is no finance major at GS.

  5. damn

    Shit I wish I knew about the finance major instead of wasting my time doing economics!
