Marios Georgiou made history for his nation and himself by becoming the first-ever Cypriot to win an AA medal in Europe.

At the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Marios earned gold medals in the floor and parallel bars events in addition to a bronze in the individual all-around competition.

Who Are Marios Georgiou's Parents? 

To get this medal, he had to face several obstacles, including racism towards him because he is half-Filipino, his mother's recent separation from him, and his father's death.

In the latter part, things with his late father were significantly better. Marios has a shoulder-to-wrist Maori tattoo on his right arm. It depicts several aspects of his life, including the loss of his father and the hope that he is still with him somehow. One design is a kind of semi-circle filled with blossoms.

Another tattoo on his left wrist makes it even more apparent: "Georgios Georgiou" and the date March 27, 2017, which marks the day his father passed away from a heart attack at age 65 after working years of unhealthy long hours as a taxi driver (he had been moved to the front office in his later years, answering phones, but continued to work from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.).

Despite making it clear that they had a rocky relationship, his son says, "I'm proud of my dad because basically - at the end of the day, he was the only one that remained by me."

Marios' mother moved out when he was ten and had to move in with his father, but he lived with her for a bit until she left two years later. Dad was older and more involved, so Mum had generally left him alone (without gymnastics, he would have been roaming around like a wild animal). They frequently disagreed, as he recalls, "It was weird for me."
