None ever better

On YouTube, there are clips of great jugglers, including both the Brunns. There also is an interview with Lottie describing the extraordinary discipline Francis followed to keep and maintain his skills. He often practiced more than 8 hours per day. Lottie noted that such dedication is all but lost, as very few will put this effort into attaining Brunn's level of performance.

Francis was in a class of his own that is for sure. Anthony Gaitto, Ignatov, and some others are also forces to be reckoned with when it comes to juggling. Many consider Anthony to be probably the best technical juggler of modern times. Enrico Rastelli was another who looms big in the annuals of juggling.

The time and effort that top of the line jugglers put into an act is staggering. At one time doing five clubs or seven rings was really something. Now we have jugglers doing routines with large numbers of objects.

The jugglers are out there. You just have to know where to find them.
