IWGA Athlete of the Year 2017 Award

Billiards, Kyren Wilson, GBR

Kyren Wilson (GBR) won Snooker gold at The World Games 2017. He saw off Ali Carter in the final 3-1 to ensure he claimed gold. Since then he has gone on to reach a further two World Ranking event finals, so The World Games success seems to have been a good springboard for him on the regular circuit as well.
