Of course, I can win three World Championships.

The paradise bird famous for his colorful hair and colorful dresses has crowned a famous season and is now in the world ranking only about 15,000 pounds behind Prius Berwyn Price from Wales. The next goal is clear: the first conquest of the top place. At the end of this year, I should be the number one and that as the first Scot in history, Wright said. Also, 2022 will be his year.
The very wild cause, which he still announced after his premiere stirring two years ago against the Dutchman Michael van Ger wen, fell out this time according to the prudence favorite. There is no party, but one or two cups of tea, Wright said at DAZN. He was just too old for that. For the duel on the slice, this was not enough for the gripping 7: 5 final victory against the Englishman Michael Smith, there was the experience. The old man is still there, said the happy Wright with a shot of satisfaction.
He is now a two-time world champion, current team world champion and winner of the World Match play, which is considered the second most important tournament of the year.

He almost stopped a few years ago when his wife had not hindered him.
2013 he wanted to stop
For Wright's career, the concept of a wild roller coaster ride is absolutely true. He grew up in poor conditions and threw as a child's arrows on trees he had painted a slice before. After that, he played for a long time at a regional level, at the end of 2013, as a professional wanted to finish prematurely.
It's every time his wife, who brings him to the right track again. Joanne is not only partner and trusted, but also acts as a manager for her husband. In addition, she assumes the time-consuming task of making Wright's hairstyles and outfits from the great appearances. She always paints him the snake bite (Snakebite) on his head. And if he would go now, as a two-time world champion? I do not go back, not now. Jo would not let me know, Wright made clear and laughed.

Van Ger wen and China did not divide athletic
It was a matching final point for a World Cup with gripping lots, great darts sports, but also abundant weathering with a full hall in times of Corona pandemic and positive tests, which among others the Dutch ex-world champion Van Ger wen and previous year's half-finalist Dave China England from the tournament took. The PDC was so difficult in these three weeks in the criticism as never before and sometime only communicated the necessary.
For Wright, it should continue with another success after a great season. The Premier League title is still missing, the replacement of muscle press Price as a number one is likely to be just a matter of time in view of the strong year 2021.
