If you are a darts fan and have been following the 2018 World Cup series, you will be aware of some of the astonishing skill on display and fantastic performances from the competing teams.

Scotland as a nation have been extremely impressive, progressing all the way to the final, which is a great achievement for a country of such small size.

However, their perseverance failed to get them over the final hurdle, as a Raymond van Barneveld inspired performance meant the Netherlands retained the title - their fourth overall.

In 'Barnie' and Michael van Gerwen, the Netherlands have two of darts' greatest competitors, and their experience and ability showed as they came to an impressive victory. 

Aside from the great darts skills on display, another thing caught viewers' attention, and this time it was not the notorious chanting from fans, instead it was a series of different humourous dancing skills performed by the competing countries 

Canada suffered a second-round defeat to Japan at the World Cup of Darts, but competitors Dawson Murschell and John Part certainly made their mark with some eye-catching dance moves.

They got the crowd going with the 'Floss', a dance-move which has recently become extremely popular with children across the world.

However, the best dance move of the tournament has to be awarded to team Belgium, who impressed everyone with both their dance moves and darts skills.

After Rob Cross defeated Kim Huybrechts 4-2 in a high-quality opening game, World Youth Champion Dimitri van den Bergh had it all to do against Dave Chisnall.

He certainly delivered and beat Chisnall, and the Belgian pair produced an outstanding doubles performance to effectively whitewash Cross and Chisnall and send them packing. 

Despite this wonderful display from Belgium, it was in fact their dancing which got people talking. 

Van Den Bergh burst into an impressive silky dance, and much to the amusement of viewers, Huybrechts also came along and joined in, leaving the crowd in fits of hysterics.

Overall, the Darts World Cup did not fail to deliver, and after a very good showing from all teams, darts fans will be raring for the next opportunity so see these talented people on their screens.

Congratulations to Raymond van Barneveld, Michael van Gerwen and the Netherlands team.
