The German Ladies Team at the 4 Nations event in Belgium took the title this year in a closely run battle with the Netherlands.
In the ladies singles event the German ladies dominated having 3 players in the last 4. The final was contested between Irina and Stephanie Rennock.
Irina winning a tight match.
The 4 Nations Event is a competion between teams from Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium. With men, ladies, boys and girls teams taking part.
Irina put in probably her best performance ever on TV when she took on Sharon Prins in the last 16 of the Lakeside World Professional.
Frustrated by her earlier performances on TV Irina was determined to show the viewing public she can play darts.Poor Sharon, who hardly did a thing wrong, was on the receiving end of a whitewash. Just as the commentator, Tony Green, was saying to his co-commentator, Trina Gulliver MBE, that it was the doubles that generally let down the ladies game, Irina went on to hit 5 doubles with 5 darts in the last 5 legs. With 2 missed darts in the first leg it gave Irina a very impressive 75% on her finishes.
