Gabriel Clemens made it into the last eight of the Darts World Cup.
No German player has ever done that before.
London - Gabriel Clemens was the first German player in the history of the Darts World Cup in London to reach the quarterfinals.
The 39-year-old Saarlander won his round of 16 game against the Scottish outsider Alan Soutar 4-1 on Friday and thus played a duel with the world number one Gerwyn Price from Wales.
The encounter between Clemens and Price takes place on New Year's Day.
The "German Giant" had previously defeated Irishman William O'Connor (3:0) and Welshman Jim Williams (4:3).
Clemens is now only two wins away from the big final, which takes place on January 3rd at Alexandra Palace.
