Rio sisters: From violence to the Olympics
The future once looked anything but bright for Lohaynny and Luana Vicente, Brazilian sisters whose father, a drug dealer, was killed in a shootout with police when they were four and six years old. But sixteen years after that tragic day, the two sisters are elite athletes and rising stars in badminton, a sport little played in a country better known for soccer and surfing. So far have they come that Lohaynny, now 20, is classified to compete in the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
