Which PS topic sounds more interesting?

Hi everyone...been lurking for a while...

Which of these PS topics do you think sounds more interesting/unique?

1. I've done triathlons for the past 5 years. I don't really compete to win, just do it recreationally. But it takes up most of my free time, and I think it sets me apart from other applicants

2. I grew up on a farm. Neither of my parents even finished high school, let alone college. My parents didn't support me going to college, and still resent me for leaving the farm. I was one of 5 people from my hs who went to college.

Thanks for any advice!
