Women's Snooker - 2015 IBSF Girls World Under 21's Snooker Championship

17th-26th July 2015 / The Hotel Caro, Bucharest, Romania


       NUANTHAKHAMJAN IS TOP GIRL


Siripaporn Nuanthakhamjan defeated fellow Thai youngster Nutcharat Wongharuthai to become the new IBSF Girls World Snooker Champion.


The 16 year olds both qualified top of their respective round robin groups with 100 percent records, each dropping only a frame in the process.


Come the quarter and semi finals it was a similar story, although Wongharuthai was made to work a bit harder in her last 4 clash with Bulgaria's Nikoleta Nikolova.


But it was Nuanthakhamjan who was the star of the show in the final with a relatively comfortable 5-2 win.


It is the second world title for the female from Chon Buri, after success at the 2014 IBSF Women's World 6 Red discipline in Egypt.


Wongharuthai made sensational headlines earlier in the event when she constructed a record breaking 124 break - the highest of the tournaments short history.
