|Interview Colin Osborne||Back||1||2||3||Forward|
Colin Osborne was so kind and answered me some questions in between his quarterfinal and his semi-final match during the UK Open. It really was a pleasure to talk to him and I enjoyed it very much even though we ended more in a conversation then in a real interview…
Colin, you've played table tennis, yo-yo and snooker - have you got a special dexterity?
Pssst, don´t mention that!! Yes I did when I was a youth and I enjoyed it. And I think it really is a special skill and now it's something I can well use in darts. Can't one see it?
And had your original profession something to do with working with your hands as well?
Oh no, not at all! I was a publican.
But now you are a full-time darts pro?
Yes. I think for around two and half to three years now.
How did that happen?
I like sports and I was looking for something I could use my skills would enjoy and could live of and that turned out to be darts.
When did you start to play darts?
I started to play darts when I was a youth. But I only played for fun never county or league.
So you really never played BDO youth or anything competitive?
No, really, not at all. I really decided to give darts a try and from playing for fun I straight entered the PDC.
