Eddie Edwards is the first and only competitor to represent Great Britain at the Olympic Ski Jump.
Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards rose to prominence in 1988 when his attempt at Olympic Glory ended in last position. As Britain’s most recognisable Ski-jumper Eddie became a hero overnight thanks to his optimistic attitude and ‘have-a-go’ approach to the amazingly ambitious challenge of winning a Gold Medal for Britain.
After the Calgary Olympics, Eddie made numerous chat show appearances relaying his Olympic experiences and he even promoted his popularity with his own range of T-Shirts. Suddenly Eddies days as a decorator were over and national fame and recognition became a part of everyday life.
Eddie moved to America and continued to train for Ski Jumping competitions. He has now returned to England and is in demand for After Dinner Speaking engagements. In between speaking Eddie is currently studying for his A-Levels with a view to taking a law degree in the future.
