Gulliver has dominated women's darts for a decade
Trina Gulliver has won her ninth BDO Women's World Darts Championship by beating Wales' Rhian Edwards 2-0 in a repeat of last year's Lakeside final.
Gulliver was, however, well tested by her opponent, who hammered second seed Deta Hedman in the semi-finals.
But 'The Golden Girl' was not to be denied and afterwards said: "It's a great feeling to retain the title."
Gulliver, 41, dedicated her win to her ill mother before declaring: "I am hungry for more world titles."
Edwards made a strong start, taking a first leg which saw Warwickshire's Gulliver score just seven with her third set of darts.
She hit back to take the set, though, and took the opening leg of the next before Evans responded with a 106 checkout to level the set.
But Gulliver won the next two legs to clinch victory and the £10,000 first prize.
She has been involved in every Lakeside women's final since the competition's inception in 2001, losing only twice, to Anastasia Dobromyslova in 2008 and to Francis Hoenselaar the following year.
