German Darts Grand Prix in Munich: Humphries wins in record speed – Sport

It wasn’t even 13 minutes before it was over: never before had a darts professional won a final on the European Pro Tour faster than world champion Luke Humphries from England won his final against Michael van Gerwen at the German Darts Grand Prix Easter Monday at Zenith in Munich. The number one in the current world rankings dismantled his rival from the Netherlands with 8:1, achieved an average of 112.66 points per shot in the nine legs played and safely collected the 30,000 pounds in prize money.

As the best German, Martin Schindler from Strausberg reached the semi-finals of this tournament over the Easter weekend after beating three top 15 players – Damon Heta (Australia), Chris Dobey and world number four Nathan Aspinall (both England). In the round of the last four, however, Schindler lost quite clearly against van Gerwen with 2:7. The other two top German players, Gabriel Clemens and Ricardo Pietreczko, had already failed against their first opponents at the tournament in the north of Munich.
