There are few people in the fencing world who do not know who Richard Kruse is, representing Great Britain in the men’s foil Olympics. One of the most notable qualities of this man is his dedication to training. I have met few people who work as hard and as consistently as Richard, and the work seems to pay off.
When I get into work at 8AM (not 10), we often see the more dedicated fencers already beginning their warmups and practice drills. Among them is always Richard.
“Surprised to see you here so early.” – I would always say.
We always joke about his training effects his luck, and his response is always
“The more I train the luckier I seem to get”. Kruse
