Because Champion is an aptly name for the role.

It is the correct name for that role:

champion |ˈCHampēən| noun
1 a person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition,

The correct usage is of course definition #2

Beautiful is in the eye of the beholder. Less is definitely not always
beautiful. See for example [1]: less classes.

Identifying and correctly naming roles is very important—especially in
an environment as the incubator.
