Dianne Barker of Kamloops will receive the Sport BC Daryl Thompson Lifetime Achievement Award during an awards ceremony on Thursday in Vancouver.

Longtime curling official Barker has been a fixture at major events, including many world championships and at Olympic Games in Vancouver, Sochi and Pyeongchang.

"For over three decades, our Daryl Thompson Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Dianne Barker has truly made a difference in the sport of curling, within our province and beyond,” Sport BC president and CEO Rob Newman said. The award is presented to an individual who has contributed time in an extraordinary way to sport over a long period of time and/or has made a major contribution to amateur sport in the province.
