Golden Bears Wresling MVP
Next to the Wilson Challenge Trophy, the Beaumont Cup is the oldest active athletics trophy still awarded annually. It was originally awarded to the wrestler with the “best general record”, but has grown to represent the Bears Wrestling MVP. The Cup was donated to the University Athletics Board in 1946-47 by Wally J. Beaumont, a Law graduate who represented the University of Alberta in both wrestling and boxing during his undergraduate years. The original Beaumont Cup was for Boxing only, starting in 1936-37. Beaumont also donated the Golden Bears Swimming award, the Beaumont Trophy.
