Darts - what brings the day to the Darts World Cup

LONDON (DPA) – Now the World Championships for Darts Germany is also starting in London.

16-year-old Fabian Schmutzler will enter the most important tournament of the year as the first of four players this Thursday (1.30 p.m. and 8 p.m. / Sport1 & DAZN). If he wins, he gets a World Cup record from a fellow countryman.

Schmutzler is fighting for a record

Normal teens go to school at the age of 16. This also applies to Frankfurt Schmutzler. This week, however, the high school student got a break on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to attend the Darts World Cup in London. “I may be the youngest participant to win a game. It means a lot. But I see it as more motivation than pressure. I try to achieve it,” said DPA’s Schmutzler. If he defeats Englishman Ryan Meikle (at 9 p.m.), he will replace Max Hope as the youngest individual winner in tournament history.

former world champion duel

Adrian Lewis mastered the mandatory task with 3:1 against Canada’s Matt Campbell. Now comes the former world champion’s duel: “Jackpot” Lewis, champion 2011 and 2012, will face Scottish Gary Anderson (title winner 2015 and 2016) late in the evening (11 p.m.). Particularly striking: the two legends went head-to-head in the 2011 and 2016 World Cup finals. Now they are already playing in the second round of the World Cup to make it to the last 32.
