As the son of international rider Thomas Fuchs and nephew of the legendary Markus Fuchs, Martin Fuchs is quickly following in the footsteps of his elders. In 2010, he won the team event at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.
Since then, he has continued to put in a string of top performances and became world number one in January 2020. With a runner-up world title in 2018 and a European title in 2019 with Clooney, the young prodigy from Zurich confirms his talent and continues to collect medals at the biggest championships. Before dominating the ranking with the elite, he had already won nine European medals in the children's, junior and young rider categories.
In 2014, he won the Swiss senior title and his first 5* Grand Prix at the Gucci Paris Masters the same year before becoming the youngest rider to enter the top 10 in March 2018. In 2019, he won his first Rolex Grand Slam Grand Prix at the CHI Geneva, with his faithful Clooney. Clooney, who is Martin's lead horse, arrived at his stables at the age of 7. He has several owners, including Luigi Baleri, who owns most of Martin's cracks and has supported him since he was 13.
