Vice-skip of the New Zealand men’s team Sean Becker was awarded the 2012 World Curling Federation Collie Campbell Memorial Award. Mr Becker was selected for the award by fellow players at the World Men’s Curling Championship for best exemplifying the traditional values of skill, honesty, fair play, sportsmanship and friendship during the event. The Kyeburn man also won the award in 1999 and 2004, making him the first curler to win it for a third time. Chief Umpire Alan Stanfield made the presentation Mr Becker during the tournament closing ceremony on Sunday. The Collie Campbell Memorial Award was created in honour of Canadian Collie Campbell who served as president of the International Curling Federation (later renamed the World Curling Federation) from 1969 until his death in 1978.
