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.

We shot this in November ’10 right after the Fencing Masters NYC while Jaime Marti was still in NYC.  The shoot was a lot of fun.  We went all over NYC fencing in some pretty nice threads: Prada, Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabana to name a few!
