Jaime Marti’s Torn Fencing Glove

Yesterday at practice, Olympian Jaime Marti had his saber hand run-through with a saber from his opponent.

The blade went through the top of his glove (making that hole seen above), through his hand and then came out the other side tearing apart the inside of the glove.

This is just another example of several glove accidents that I’ve personally seen. Last year, my saber went through the glove of my teammate Jeff Spear at practice and punctured his finger.  He actually has lost feeling in one of his fingers.
