Dimitri Van den Bergh may be more widely known for his smooth dance moves to his walk-on music, but there’s no doubt he can throw some excellent darts as well and he proved it at the Grand Slam last night.
The Belgian was taking on Stephen Bunting for a place in the quarter finals of the event in Wolverhampton when his magic moment arrived in the 15th leg of a tight contest.
When you hit a nine-darter and qualify for the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam of Darts…

A nine-dart leg is one of the most majestic sights you’ll see in sports, that’s why we decided to offer up £50,000 to the fans at the recent Champions League of Darts in Brighton.
Sadly, it wasn’t to be that weekend, despite a few close calls. Van den Bergh landed himself a whopping £25,000 prize pot though, by scoring his moment of darting excellence last night.
The nine-darter helped him to a 10-6 victory over Bunting and he now faces Mensur Suljovic, who took out World champion Rob Cross, in the quarter-finals.
All we can think about is those nine perfect darts though and you can watch them over and over again thanks to the PDC’s YouTube channel below:
