The dart career of Raymond van Barneveld is over. The 52-year-old Dutchman was immediately eliminated on Saturday in the first round of the World Cup in London by a 1-3 loss against Darin Young.

Van Barneveld never really got into his game. Although he scored a much higher average than Young (96 out of 87 points), he missed far too many doubles to be able to claim the victory.
