Siberia to Florida was such a move.

But without that, there would have been no Sharapova.

Iran to Vegas was another move which produced Agassi.

I do recognize though that these moves were different from someone moving within the US, or from the US to another country, because Yuri and Mike were also fleeing the living conditions.

But still ........
You might as well buy a lottery ticket as you are using the one-in-a-million (and then some) examples.
