The 44-year-old Englishman “Scotty Dog” Mitchell, the professional player sponsored by Nice UK, wins his first British Darts Organization World title: at the Lakeside Country Club, Scott defeated the three-time champion Martin “Wolfie” Adams in a 7-6 in a thrilling final that has been broadcasted live Sunday, January 11th on BBC2, and during the semi-finals too.
"The World Championship has been part of my life since I was an eight-year-old. Now to be part of the history of this place is very special", Mitchell told to BBC Sport. This is a "life-changing" experience, adds the interviewer from BBC: “Many onlookers considered Mitchell was too nice to reach the very top of his sport. You will struggle to find anyone with a bad word to say about him on the circuit. But things changed in 2014, his breakthrough year: he remains a nice guy, but a serene rhythm and a steely determination are now evident every time he throws”.
