The SIRI & BEK show: S1E4 - What Would You Like to be When You Grow Up?
Siri & Bek take us back to their grass roots to talk about how they got into sport as children and when they developed an interest in triathlon. As they were growing up they were often teased about their body shape that could have demoralized them and put them off playing sport. And we also hear from Siri about her father's reaction when he discovered she was gay and how that effected her self esteem. Instead of giving in and giving up these hurtful and shaming comments motivated them even more and they grew as athletes and as gay women in spite of these hurdles.
