Bull’s-eye View: Dimitri Van den BerghPosted on January 17, 2017 by htdarts
Like all great sports, youth development is something of intrigue. Watching individuals learn and develop and potentially growing into the best in the world, is one of the most satisfying elements of any sport. This week, we will be introducing an up and coming darts player – Dimitri Van den Bergh.
Born in Belgium, Dimitri Van den Bergh – or “The Dream Maker” as he is known in the darts community, has made it onto our radar over at High Tension. Aged just 22, Van den Bergh has certainly made his mark as a force to be reckoned with. He boasts some great accomplishments in his young career: winning two events on the PDC Unicorn Youth Tour in 2014 and winning the British teen open and a PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour in 2013.
These great successes have not gone unnoticed. Van den Bergh is now signed with Unicorn, one of his greatest personal accomplishments as he cites fellow Unicorn signees the Huybrechts brothers as his heroes.
In his most recent competition, Van den Bergh made it to the last 32 in the World PDC Championship in 2016. It will be exciting to see whether he can live up to his nickname and make his dreams come true in the darts world!
