    I was able to read the article, without seeing any prompt to subscribe.

    Try opening it in a private-mode browser window; that will often let you bypass the free-article limit.

    They didn't like that with firefox.

    But then I switched to Chrome. The advantages of Linux with so many browsers. So a whole article about Greg and the Massialas boys of MTEAM. Not a bad read. But only foil. So wish we had a similar power house with epee in the Bay Area. Eh what am I saying. We have several. They just haven't brought in the medals, YET!

    Well....the writer and his son are both foilists (although Zach does epee when our scholastic league holds that weapon...and an epee program is starting at his club, so...)

    That IS a nice article. Yes, it's about foil only, but they published an article about fencing! Great!! Going to pass it on - generate some excitement... maybe. Love the line "if you're not doing what I tell you, you'd better hit!" oh, and it opened with no problem.

    try opening this in your current window - it generally strips out all the advertising and paywall stuff: https://outline.com/tEXYXg
