"London 2012 will be Richard Kruse's third Olympics. The foil fencer reached the quarter-finals in 2004 in Athens and won silver in the European Championships this year but made a disappointingly early exit in the recent British Championships"

What about all the recent MF medals then? Typical Journos...

Equally bizarre is the #12 who they say is really for 2016... maybe they should do a 16 for 2016 to include her and find a more interesting prospect for the 2012 list.

The whole qualification process for the Olympics makes my brain hurt, but I think that to get both Kruse and Halsted in, we need there to be a team event. Fingers crossed that there is a medal on offer for MF team in 2012. Suspect Keith Smith will be pushing for it at congress.

Gotta love the fact that Kruse looks more like he's been in the pool than Tome Daley!

I'm surprised to see Jessica Ennis isn't on the list.
