Becker was selected for the award by fellow players at this year’s World Men’s Curling Championship in Basel, Switzerland. All participants at the Championship were invited to nominate a fellow competitor who, in their view, best exemplified the traditional values of skill, honesty, fair play, sportsmanship and friendship during the event.
Becker and his teammates Peter de Boer (skip), Scott Becker, Kenny Thomson and Phil Dowling finished fifth at the 2012 event – the best ever finish by a New Zealand team.
