Bebe Vio: world wheelchair fencing champion

Beatrice Vio strarted practicing fencing since the age of 5. When she was 11, a sudden attack of meningitis caused her the loss of her arms and legs. One of her greatest wishes was to be able to go back to sports and she succeeded, together with Art4sport Onlus and a team of specialized technicians. In January 2010, she began to practice fencing, now in wheelchair, and in May 2010, she competed in her first official match. Thanks to Paralympic fencing, she has been having wonderful experiences that are filling her life with satisfaction. After winning the European and the World Cup in 2014 and again the World Cup in 2015, she had an extraordinary season in 2016. She won the European and the World Cup and the individual gold and team bronze medals at the Rio Paralympics. An exciting soirée together with Bebe and the whole Paralympic National team.
