Morihiro Hashimoto Passes Away

March 14 2017

THE Professional Darts Corporation is saddened to hear of the passing of Japanese player Morihiro Hashimoto on Monday March 13.

The 40-year-old, nicknamed The Ogre, competed twice in the World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace, winning through from the preliminary round in both 2011 and 2014.

The Ally Pally crowd took the Japanese ace to their hearts, serenading Hashimoto despite his loss to Gary Anderson in the 2011 tournament.

A star on the soft-tip circuit, Hashimoto also competed in the 2015 Japan Darts Masters as the World Series of Darts visited his homeland, and represented his country three times in the World Cup of Darts.
