ESPN’s E:60 posted this awesome documentary video of Maria Sharapova returning to Chernobyl, the place that was once her family’s home.
A nice celebration of immigrant parents making the ultimate sacrifice for their children. This video definitely hits home for me, as my family fled Vietnam in ’75 with nothing but their clothes on their back and us kids in hand.
Kudos to Maria Sharapova for re-discovering her roots, something i also had the pleasure of doing in ’08 in Vietnam with Frites. And kudos to ESPN on the fantastic job they did with this piece.
