Ian Thorpe to host new ABC exposé on bullying


Aussie Olympic swimming great Ian Thorpe will open up about his own experience of being bullied as a teenager in a three-part documentary which aims to tackle all sides of the issue of bullying in schools.

“More than a quarter of school children in Australia claim to have been bullied on a regular basis, which is unacceptable,” says the 33-year-old out gay former Olympian, whose series will air on the ABC later this year.

“I have some personal experience around the issue of bullying so I want to share my insights to help Australian kids,” he adds.
