HBO’s “Real Sports” Highlights Rugby Star Gareth Thomas

Last month, I stumbled across an episode of HBO’s acclaimed video series “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel,” where correspondent Bernie Goldberg was featuring Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas. The focus of the feature was on Thomas’ sexual orientation. Thomas is the first openly gay athlete who is currently participating in any professional sports competition.

You can find a short excerpt of the video here.
