Synopsis

“Every evening, before going to sleep, I charge my phone, my iPad… and my hands”.¬† Bebe Vio is just like that, ironic and true. Gold at World and European Championships, aged 19, it’s her first try at the Paralympic Games, where she won a gold and a bronze medal. Her life changed in 2008, after being struck down by acute meningitis, but she didn’t give up, and discovered the world of wheelchair fencing. And so her journey continues.
