Meet Shirin Gerami, the three-sport athlete whose
personal convictions changed the game. 

Prior to 2012, women were not allowed to represent Iran in triathlon.

This short film features Shirin Gerami who competes internationally in the sport of triathlon, representing her home country of Iran. Her story however, quickly ushers viewers past the domains of national boundaries and sport. 

The reasons are several, among them; Shirin’s believe that gratitude may be expressed by one’s lifestyle, that angels are everywhere, and that “no” is just one answer. (Rarely the last one.) To this point, she has chosen her battles carefully, and in doing so, crossed finish lines that expanded boundaries for women around the world.
