Episode 53

Vicky Holland and Nikki Bartlett in conversation

I thought we could all do with a bit of a giggle at the moment. Step forward two bubbly triathletes: Vicky Holland and Nikki Bartlett. This isn't just a random pairing. These two have known each other since they were teenagers and stick them together and you won't get a word in edgeways. It was a LOT of fun listening to these two and I hope it pops a smile on your face.
