Only his sleeves make Peter Wright sweat, Paul Lim makes him sexy
Paul Lim seemed to be doing it again. Singapore Slinger won a World Cup match last year at the age of 67. Wiggle record after surviving five darts matches. Peter Wright faced very different problems.
sEater Wright successfully entered the darts world cup. The 2020 world champion beat Ryan Mikley 3-0, who defeated German Fabian Schmutzler by the same score on the second day of the tournament.
“Snakebite” appeared on stage in a colorful Christmas suit, mohawk in pink and golden yellow. After his actions in recent years, this is a relatively subtle note from open world No. 2. At the 2020 World Cup, the Scot jumped across the stage as a Christmas elf, last year making the World Cup as unsafe as the Grinch.
As much as his control over his weak opponent, the outfit caused serious problems for him, as he later said, “The long arms were awful,” he would hope to play in a shorter dress for his third-round match after Christmas, as he revealed to his wife at the subsequent press conference. Joan Wright, who had always been in charge of his clothes, responded by shaking her head.
In terms of sport, the Scot was without a doubt against the Englishman. They were 92.19 to 79.29 at the end of the twelve men as averages in the statistics. A quiet foe for Wright, having presented at least all of the players seeded in Group One against the underdog in the tournament.
Previously, fellow countryman William Borland had created a magical moment with nine players in the decisive match against Bradley Brooks.
And not much was missing, the perfect match was the second scene of an unforgettable evening at Alexandra Palace.
Paul Lim, who won last year’s match by defeating Luke Humphreys as the oldest player in World Cup history, has announced that he will correct his record for another year. The Singaporean, who will celebrate his 68th birthday in January, had already survived five matches against Joe Murnan.
The level wasn’t very good, they both played with an average of 79, but it was still exciting. Mornan had three darts in his hand with a 2-1 score, but missed them all. Then the Englishman advanced 2-0 in the fifth round, and he had two more chances to win and those opportunities were missed. Lim, who is playing his 26th World Cup career (also a record), came right before the winner with 65 points remaining, when his opponent took the 3-2 win after all.
