Beatrice Vio has been fencing since she was five. At the age of twelve, all the limbs were amputated due to meningitis, but this did not stop her from continuing to practice the sport she loves and becoming a world champion in Rio's Paralympic Games, at only nineteen years. With the support and determination of her family, she challenges every limitation and expectation. Beatrice is a spokesperson and testimonial of meningitis vaccination campaigns and founder of Art4Sport, an association that offers children who have undergone amputations the necessary prostheses to continue playing sports.
