Female darts player Fallon Sherrock beats another man at World Championships | UK News



Female darts player Fallon Sherrock is celebrating her second historic win against a man this week at the World Championships.

The 25-year-old Englishwoman eliminated Number 11-ranked Mensur Suljobic with a 3-1 win in the second round of the PDC World Championship on Saturday evening.

Sherrock’s victory followed her 3-2 win on Tuesday against Ted Evetts, which made her the first female player to beat a man at the sport’s flagship event.

The dartswoman, from Milton Keynes, clinched victory against Suljovic by hitting a bullseye.

She put her hand to her mouth in astonishment as the energetic crowd celebrated at Alexandra Palace in north London.

Shortly after the win she tweeted a picture of herself with fellow darts player Corrine Hammond, with the caption: “Really buzzing now…! I have done it again! OMG.”
