Ruedi Setz Memorial Award

The Ruedi Setz Memorial Award was established in Ruedi’s memory by his family following his sudden death in November 1989. Ruedi Setz was an enthusiastic builder of the sport of Biathlon - a strong competitor who was one of Alberta’s premier athletes.

The award will honour a biathlete who has performed well in the sport, displayed exemplary standards of sportsmanship, and made a significant contribution in assisting the development of the sport. The recipient will not necessarily have exhibited the highest performance level during the competition year.
