CNN features Blake's journey

Thu 9 Jan 2014 In: Worth Checking Out View at NDHA

NZ’s Blake Skjellerup is among those who feature in CNN’s Journey of the Gay Athlete, which premieres this weekend. Watch a promo below. The synopsis: Character, camaraderie, integrity; attributes often touted in the world of sport. But in recent years, there's one action that's gradually being tested on the field and in the ring... tolerance. The topic of homosexuality and homophobia in sport seems to have run rampant among the world's leading sporting federations. In a World Sport Presents original documentary, CNN gets exclusive access to people on the frontlines fighting against homophobia in sport, to profile some of sport's most courageous athletes and hear their stories of tackling sport's last taboo. The documentary will play on CNN on Sky TV in New Zealand: Sat 11 Jan 10PM, Sun 12 Jan 9AM and 4PM and Mon 13 Jan Midnight staff - 9th January 2014
