Luca Brecel, a Belgian professional snooker player, has been making waves in the snooker world since he was a child.
He started playing the sport at the age of nine and has since become a well-known name in the world of snooker.
At the age of 14, Brecel became the youngest European Under-19 champion after defeating Michael Wasley in a match held in Saint Petersburg in April 2009.
Later that year, he participated in the Grand Final of the World Series of Snooker in Portugal, where he defeated Jimmy White and Ken Doherty before losing to Graeme Dott in the quarter-finals.
In August 2009, Brecel managed to beat Joe Perry, who was then ranked 12th in the world, at the Paul Hunter Classic.
He continued to perform well in exhibitions and tournaments throughout 2010, including beating Bjorn Haneveer by 7-4 to become the Belgian senior champion, with a break of 136, the highest of the tournament.
Brecel was also one of the eight players who participated in the new Power Snooker tournament held at the indigO2 in October 2010.
The tournament included top snooker players such as Neil Robertson, Ding Junhui, Mark Selby, Ali Carter, Shaun Murphy, Jimmy White, and Ronnie O’Sullivan. Unfortunately, Brecel was defeated by eventual winner O’Sullivan in the first round.
In December 2010, Brecel was named Belgian Sportsman of the Year in the Promising Talent category, a testament to his hard work and dedication to the sport.
It is clear that Brecel has a bright future ahead of him, and snooker fans are eagerly anticipating what he will achieve in the years to come.
