Mahitthi and Evans victorious in the IBSF World Snooker Championship

Thailand's Atthasit Mahitthi and Reanne Evans from England won gold medals at the IBSF World Snooker Championships.

Mahitthi beat fellow Thai Passakorn Suwannawat 11-7 in the men's final while Evans blanked defending champion Wendy Jans (Belgium) 5-0.

This was Mahitthi's first world title. His previous best was joint third in 2006. Evans has won once before, in 2004. She is also a three-time defending champion of the World Ladies Snooker Championship, organized by the World Ladies Snooker & Billiards Association.

The victory means Mahitthi is set to be nominated for a place on the Main Tour in the 2008/2009 season.

The highest break of the tournament was 140 by Alex Borg (Malta). Evans had a 64 in the Ladies division and Kieran McMahon (Northern Ireland) topped the Masters break table with a 115.

Former pro Darren Morgan won the Masters (Over 40s). He beat Karnchai Wongian from Thailand 5-1 in the final.

The event was held 11-25 November in Sima Thani Hotel, Korat, Thailand.
