On the first day of the Athletics competition, RMI athletes, Mr. Roman Cress and daughter Mariana Cress share a father-daughter moment. They both earned medals in the 200 meter finals for both the men and women.
Roman Cress won the silver medal in the men's 200 meter finals, and Mariana Cress won bronze in the women's 200 meter finals. Although they both didn't win gold for their country, they gained something even more valuable;an unforgetable father-daughter experience.
Mr. Cress had a few reasons for joining this years micro-games. He mainly wanted to help his daughter succeed in her training. He was then told to tryout as well, and he did. Unexpectedly, he still had the talent and the capability to compete. Nothing pleased him more to know that he would have another shot at the competition, but now with his daughter.
Roman tries his best to motivate his daughter. He said, " I'm just trying to inspire her, so i can walk off into the sunset, so she can walk out". This goes to show the love and determination that he has for his daughter.
