Martin Larsen of Sweden became the first international player to be selected as the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award recipient twice.
Larsen, a 10-year PBA Tour veteran, has been one of Europe’s premier bowlers for years, and established himself as a world-class player in PBA Tour circles after making his debut in the inaugural PBA World Series of Bowling in 2009. While he has yet to win a PBA Tour title, he has seven championship round appearances including a pair of runner-up finishes.
Larsen was first selected as the Nagy Award recipient during the 2011-12 season. His 2019 schedule was limited after he was struck by a car and seriously injured prior to the start of the PBA Harry O’Neale Chesapeake Open in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in mid-August.
The Nagy sportsmanship award has been presented annually since 1966, the year of Nagy’s death, honoring his memory as a PBA Hall of Famer and founding member whose guidance in the PBA’s formation years was considered critical to the tour’s success.
