Throwback To Michael Van Gerwen's Seventeen Perfect Darts

Throwback To Michael Van Gerwen's Seventeen Perfect Darts

Michael van Gerwen looks to reclaim the PDC World Darts Championship title this season and it's worth remembering just how brilliant the Dutchman can be.

It's not Christmas until the darts is on! And now you can forget all your troubles and sit in front of the television for the next few weeks and enjoy some 'arrers.

Let's take a trip down memory lane reliving this incredible feat from a few years ago.

Michael van Gerwen nearly carved himself into darting history back in 2012 by throwing back-to-back nine-darters, though the 2014 World champion did execute seventeen perfect darts in one of the most extraordinary moments in 'arras history, that is still talked about in hushed tones today.

The stage was the semi-finals of the PDC 2013 World Darts Championship against James Wade. And van Gerwen stepped up to the oche slamming home a delightful nine-dart finish. Then, he very nearly did it again.

After producing seventeen perfect darts, van Gerwen narrowly missed out on double 12. Relive one of the greatest moments in the sports history below:

Seventeen perfect darts! So, so close to a double nine-dart finish, those pesky double 12's!

At the age of 31, 'Mighty Mike' has made a huge impression since he came to play in the BDO age 16, and his story from playing darts with his mates at the age of 13 to hitting two perfect legs in the third round of the UK Open qualifying event in Wigan, is certainly an interesting one.

Michael was born on the 25th April 1989 in a town called Boxtel. In his early years, van Gerwen was blissfully unaware of his darting talents as another sport dominated his childhood.

Like any other youngster in the Netherlands at the time, he strived to make a name for himself in football.

But darts was his destiny and he remains one of the best in the world, he might even be able to make a claim to be the best ever at the sport.

Can van Gerwen make it a fourth world championship?
