London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 13th Jan, 2019 ) :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 number one 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.

Having caused a massive shock by knocking out four-time champion Lisa Ashton in the first round, Suzuki capped a memorable fortnight with a record three-dart average for a women's final of 90.12.
