The final five Champions putting their names and faces to Oxygen’s unrivalled sports title are: world number one, Colin Lloyd; great showman Peter Manley; future World Champion-in-waiting, Adrian Lewis; Canadian star, John Part and former World Grand Prix winner, Alan Warriner-Little.

Currently top of the world rankings, Lloyd – nicknamed ‘Jaws’ – broke onto the scene in 1999 where he played solidly until his form in 2004 and 2005 saw him pick up two major titles, securing the number one position. Winner of the 2003 Las Vegas Desert Classic, Manley – nicknamed ‘One Dart’ for his clinical finishing – remains among the leading competitors in the sport. Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since making his debut at the 2004 Budweiser UK Open as a teenager, and is now tipped by many as a future World Champion. Canadian star Part - ‘Darth Maple’ - is one of the best known faces in darts and one of the few players to have won the World Championship with both the PDC and the BDO. Alan ‘The Iceman’ Warriner-Little has been a top professional for more than a decade and is a consistently high level performer on the circuit, winning the 2001 World Grand Prix and reaching the final in 2004.

With the oche set and the line-up of champions in the wings , this year’s most eagerly anticipated home-grown sports title looks set to finish the competition this Christmas!

Released alongside the staging of the 2007 Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship, the game offers players the thrill of the ‘as seen on TV’ darts experience. PDC World Championship Darts challenges players to take on the champions and bring victory home.
