Biography

Morten Krogh (he dropped the particle “von” from his name during the 1980s) grew up in Bergen and started early as a fencer with the Musketér club, later moving to the Fekteklubb in Bergen. He won his first individual national championship in 1969 in sabre, but later changed to épée, in which he competed at the 1972 Olympics, where he advanced to the quarter-finals after winning seven of his bouts. His last of his five individual national championship gold medals came in 1986, when he was awarded the King’s Cup as the best fencer of the championships.

Starting as a fencing instructor at The Academy of Theatre in Oslo in the 1970s, Krogh later became well-known in Norwegian Theatre circles. He was elected Head Master for the Academy from 1985-89, and was chief of education of theatre directors from 1992-2001. After that Krogh was an associate at the academy until his retirement in the spring of 2015.
