S31 E8: Beatrice

Beatrice Vio has cultivated a passion for fencing since she was five years old. At eleven, she contracted severe meningitis which took her to the brink of death. The doctors gave her an unimaginable choice: keep her limbs and risk death, or amputate all four to ensure survival. She chose life. Now, Vio is a Paralympic champion and the only fencer in the world to compete without arms or legs.
