“I made it,” he said to his dad as he was choking back tears. His dad’s eyes weren’t any drier.
“You did it,” his dad said. “Oh my god, oh my goodness, I’m crying. Congratulations.”
Later, Visacki said in an interview that his parents went above and beyond in supporting his passion at a young age, taking him to tournaments he qualified and helping grow his passion, even when it strained the family budget.
“They have given up everything for me,” he said. “They knew I was able to do it and they were always there for me. My dad cried, my mom cried, and I cried.”
It’s a testament to fighting for your dream and to the difference a parent can make in that journey. It’s one of those cool moments in sports, where you get to see the moment a person accomplishes a near-impossible task.
