Gulliver has vowed to bounce back from her defeat
Trina Gulliver's long reign as women's Lakeside World Darts champion was ended as she was beaten 2-0 in the final by Anastasia Dobromyslava.
Warwickshire's Gulliver, gunning for her eighth straight title, had never been beaten on the Lakeside stage.
But Dobromyslava, 23, produced 94 and 90 checkouts, a maximum, 165 and six 140s en route to her first world crown.
"Trina gave me a few chances and I took them. It is an incredible feeling," said the delighted Russian.
Gulliver was magnanimous in defeat, saying: "She deserved it because she played really well. I was hoping for another title but it was not to be.
"I felt confident before the final but I just needed a little bit of luck without taking away from Anastasia and how well she played. But I will be back."
