Jugglers of the past who did 10

Jenny Jaeger     Said by Karl-Heinz Ziethen in "4000 Years of Juggling" to have 
                 performed a 10 ball flash for a year, until her father forbade
                 it because of the strenuous practicing required (Vol.I,p.226).
Enrico Rastelli  "was known to have thrown up ten for one rotation on an
                 occasion in Russia." (_JW_ 38.4, Win. '86-'87, back cover).
