WONGHARUTHAI MAKES HISTORIC 147
Thailand’s Nutcharut Wongharuthai yesterday compiled a 147 maximum break for the first time in her career at the Hi-End Snooker Club in Thailand.
The world women’s number eight ranked player completed the magical break during a practice match and it is believed that the break is the first ever 147 to be made by a woman in a match, either in practice or tournament play.
The feat follows a successful breakthrough year in 2018 for 19-year-old Wongharuthai, who reached two ranking finals during the calendar year on her way to breaking into the world’s top ten for the first time. She also won the World Women’s Under-21 Championship for the first time last April and will return to the UK to defend her title next month.
