Eastern Europe's increasing success and enthusiasm for darts will be enforced as Boris Koltsov is heading to the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship after winning the EuroAsian Darts Corporation Qualifier on Sunday.
Koltsov defeated Evgenii Izotov 3-2 in Sets in the final to book his fifth appearance at Alexandra Palace since his debut in the 2014/15 event.
The 33-year-old came through a field which also included the likes of Dmitriy Gorbunov, who competed in the 2020/21 World Championship.
Moscow-based Koltsov, who has represented Russia in the last seven World Cups, will be seeking an elusive first win on the World Championship stage in December.
