Today’s Muse

TamirBloomOlympics1996epeeI needed a little inspiration for my WIP. Since I’m working on the tournament scene, I found the nommiest competitor on the Net.

This gorgeousness is Tamir Bloom, who fenced epee for the US in the 1996 Olympics and took 2 silver medals at the 1995 Pan American Games, as well as winning the US individual epee in 1998 and 1999.

He’s wearing his knickers and his plastron, which goes under the padded jacket. That make it much, much easier to pick him out of a crowd than if he had all his gear and his mesh mask on.

I’m inspired. Gotta go work on All Man.
