Happy New Year to all of our readers out there and what an exciting start it was! 

It looks like it’s the year of the young guns with the world’s best player and latest champion Michael van Gerwen, not even 30 yet but slaying the dart world! And the runner up, Michael Smith, coming in at the young age of 28.

It looks like the older players need to take a few pointers off the younger generation.

The females also made their mark with Nastasia Dobromyslova and Lisa Ashton making it into the PDC World Darts Championships which we think is bloody awesome that the women go up against the men. This is unlike most elite sports as darts does not strictly segregate by sex which we think is fantastic (although the BDO, the sport's other main leadership organisation, runs an annual Women's World Darts Championship) and this will not be the first time a female has competed in the sport’s most prestigious competition. In previous decades, Gayl King and Anastasia Dobromyslova were both granted wildcard entries, but this is the first time a formal qualification process has been put in place.
