Peter Wright Wins PDC World Darts Championship Title For Second Time

Posted by

In a dramatic final of the PDC World Darts Championship, Peter Wright made an incredible comeback to defeat Michael Smith.

In the 10th set, Wright came back from a 5-4 deficit and two legs up on Smith to win three sets in a row and earn the title.

The Scot, who won the title again in 2020, is only the sixth player in history to do so.

“I’m over the moon, I’ve got her back,” said Wright. “This is my lady and I’m happy to get it back.” “I didn’t turn up for eight sets and it was horrible and I was telling myself off so I stopped doing that,” added Wright, who changed darts twice during the final.

“I was getting more and more frustrated with myself and I stopped doing that and that’s why my darts straightened up.

The 51-year-old wins £500,000 in prize money and is only £15,250 behind world number one Gerwyn Price in the world darts ranking system.
