Final International Winners Known

JYHAN ARTUT and Scott Mackenzie are the latest International Qualifiers for the World Darts Championship.

Artut - who defeated Wayne Mardle on the Alexandra Palace stage last year - topped the rankings in the PDC Europe German Qualifier, which saw three events staged over the weekend.

The Hannover-based star retained his German National Championship title, with Michael Rosenauer finishing second and Kevin Munch in third place.

Mackenzie, meanwhile, defeated Alex Hon in the final of Sunday's Greater China qualifying finals in Hong Kong, which saw 16 qualifiers from Hong Kong and China competing in the latter stages of their event.

Andrej Rashnikov was the winner of the Russian Masters qualifying competition, defeating last year's champion Roman Konchikov in the semi-finals and Anastasia Dobromyslova 8-1 in the final.

However, he has informed the PDC in writing on Monday that he is unable to travel to the event due to family reasons and therefore under the PDC rule 3.7 his place in the qualifying round will pass to the PDPA qualifier.

That place is being awarded to a second player from the PDPA Qualifier in Derby on Monday, with the player to compete in the preliminary round.
