Mikuru Suzuki in winning at Lakeside on Saturday became the third non-European player to claim a World title.
As well as that she became the first player from Asia to win one meaning it is a landmark moment.
The other non-European players were John Part who won it three times and Tony David.
This will be hoped to extend the growth of darts on both sides of the game.
