Dimitri van den Bergh has made history by defending his PDC Unicorn World Youth title.

The young Belgian made it back-to-back World Youth crowns with a brilliant display on Sunday night in Minehead as he beat German Martin Schindler 6-3.

The Unicorn star was in superb form as he averaged 100.44 to take the prestigious title and a prize of £10,000

“I am just thrilled with what I have achieved,” he said. “It means so much to me to make a little bit of history. I felt good going on the stage and to defend this is a great achievement.”

On this evidence and from what we’ve seen over the last two years, there’s little doubt that Dimitri is destined for a hugely successful career with ‘Major’ titles there for the taking.

He really was superb. Van den Bergh raced into a 3-0 lead and he wasn’t going to lose from there. The highlight was a brilliant 151 finish in the third leg to take the game away from the German.

The Team Unicorn ace then banged in a second 180 for a 12-dart leg to lead 4-1. And Dimitri won the title in style as he hit two 180s to close out another fabulous triumph.

“Hopefully I’ve shown all the young players that you can follow your dreams and now it’s time for me to try to do that at the World Championship,” the Champion said.

Take another bow Dimitri van den Bergh.
