Victoria was 11 when she came down with a rare viral disease which she battled for five years – four of which she spent in a vegetative state. The disease left her without the use of her legs for almost a decade. Having been a lifelong swimmer and athlete, Arlen never gave up hope of competing in the Olympics and in spring of 2012 she qualified for the London Paralympic Games in four events. While there she won a Gold Medal and three Silver Medals. Despite missing five years of school due to her illness, Arlen graduated on-time with her triplet brothers in 2013. Arlen is now an on-air personality with ESPN reporting for numerous programs including Special Olympics, Invictus Games, and The ESPY Awards.
