Japan’s Suzuki first Asian to win darts world title
JAPANESE qualifier Mikuru Suzuki became the first Asian player to win a world darts championship title on Saturday with victory in the women’s BDO final at the Lakeside Country Club. The 36-year-old tournament debutant completed a stunning success with a comprehensive 3-0 win over English world No1 Lorraine Winstanley. Suzuki dropped only two legs in the final as she clinched the trophy and the £12,000 ($15,422) top prize without losing a single set in her four matches. “It was my best darts in this tournament, and probably my best this year too,” ‘The Miracle’ Suzuki said.
