Olympic Darts

Britain is to get its first school of excellence in darts as part of an effort to achieve Olympic status for the game.

The school's director, John Gibbs, said: "The days are gone when darts players had a fag in their mouth, a pint of beer in their hand and a big belly. We have cleaned up our image and it's a proper sport." Olympic officials attended this year's world darts championships and the Europe Cup last month.
