The Guinness World Records has officially declared a 92-year-old British woman as the oldest darts player in the world.

Candy Miller, a widow from Poole, Dorset, has been throwing darts for 52 years, The Sun reported.

"I am quite proud of the achievement and I will carry on playing for as long as my knees let me, going up and down the oche is about as far as I can walk with them at the moment. But I still play once a week, still play a good game and win every now and again," Miller said.

A retired dressmaker, Candy took up the game after a woman friend started a darts team in 1960.

Over the years she has won dozens of trophies that fill her home.

Candy plays for Alderney Manor Social Club in the Bournemouth and District Ladies Darts League. The team is currently seventh out of eight in the league table, and captain Rose Kettley is herself one of the next oldest darts players in Britain at 84.
