Steve Westlake suffers neck injury

Yet another kiwi reality tv show has had someone injured. Steve Westlake, the Trans-Atlantic rowing champion, narrowly escaped a serious spinal injury while filming No Opportunity Wasted (aka NOW) – a new reality TV show which will be on TV2 later this year.

Apparently Steve’s neck was injured (possibly fractured) after being spear-tackled by four rugby league players but he has since recovered .

The show is hosted and directed by Phil Keoghan (The Amazing Race), produced by Andrew Shaw, and you can read about the episodes here.
