Gus Hansen Says "I Can Win The World Cup In A Year"

Gus Hansen Says "I Can Win The World Cup In A Year" Danish poker legend Gustav Hansen announced recently that he is putting in between 4 and 5 hours of training every day and that he has every intention of winning the World Cup come next year.
If he does succeed in his ambitious plan then all the hard training will see the 37-year-old net the nominal sum of €3,500 on December 2nd 2012.
Before you scratch your head in confusion, Hansen is of course talking about the virtually unknown sport of ‘racketlon’ which seems to have captivated much of the Dane’s attention of late.
Racketlon involves four different racquet-sports within a single match involving a set each of table tennis, badminton, squash and tennis. It was invented in Finland in the 1980’s with the first official World Championship Of Racketlon, known as the Gothenburg Racketlon World Open, having taken place in Sweden’s second-largest city in 2001.
Describing his enthusiasm for the game, Gus Hansen commented:
“Racketlon is a very fun sport and I want to see how far I can go with it. And unlike athletic decathlons it has a fair point system. You have to be an “addict” to succeed and that’s me. I have a good chance to be a contender, but then I have to improve considerably, especially in table tennis and badminton.”
Hansen possess good tennis skills having been a youth tennis champion and he even admitted to beating Racketlon World No. 1 Christoph Krenn at squash recently. However, he also admits that he “really sucks” at badminton and table tennis, hence his attending a Swedish training camp recently and putting in more than 30 hours practice a week.
Good luck to Gus at next year’s Championship held at Stockholm’s Enskede Rackethall from November 29th to December 2nd. Something tells me he’s going to need it.
