Darts Ace Hits Bullseye With E-Lites
Only two weeks left in the year, but there’s still time in 2013 to squeeze one more sporting partner into the E-Lites family!
We’re proud to welcome Michael van Gerwen to Team E-Lites. The Dutch darts doyenne is in action between today and New Year’s Day in the 2014 PDC World Championship and we’re all rooting for him to go one better than last year and come out on top!
The 24-year-old Dutchman is the current world number two, and has enjoyed a successful 2013, winning this year’s Premier League of Darts, beating the holder and world number one, Phil Taylor. Michael also beat Taylor in the 2013 Players Championship, making him the only player in darts history to beat Phil Taylor in more than one final.
Van Gerwen is nicknamed “Mighty Mike” and is one of the fastest darts players on the circuit. In 2012, Michael beat Steve Beaton 6-0 in just eight minutes, scoring an average of just over 120 points in each visit to the board, the highest ever recorded.
Michael’s takes to the oche tonight (Tues 17) and the whole event is live on Sky Sports 2 from 7pm.
