Eddie the Eagle: ‘I was probably closer to the ostrich’ Trailer

2256

Michael Edwards, AKA Eddie Edwards, AKA Eddie the Eagle, admits the movie about his life had him in tears before the opening credits were finished. It could not have been a more accurate portrayal of the heart and soul of Britain’s first Olympic ski jumper, he says – even if, factually, it was only about 5% accurate.

It is 28 years since Edwards competed at Calgary in Canada, finishing last in both the 70m and 90m jumps, and getting about half the points of the man who finished second last.
