NEW YORK(SMI-WIRE,02.22.16)The MOMS MAMARAZZI hosted a sensational pre-screening of " EDDIE The EAGLE" & talk back with real life Olympian Ski Jumper, Michael Edwards @ Regal Battery Park Stadium, Manhattan NYC.Eddie "The Eagle"(Grint) movie is a very British hero, i.e., not very good,goofy and endearing.The film plots Eddie's entry as the only British ski jump competitor in the 1988 Calgary Olympics. Easily the worst competitor, Eddie becomes a fan favorite.
His path to glory is strewn with anecdotal stories, slapstick moments and other antics.
To paraphrase Eddie, "I realized two years before the Olympics that I might be able to get to Calgary because no one else was going to apply and so started training. I got a lot of advice from Austrian and French ski-jumping coaches, but because I can't speak French or German, a lot of it went over my head."A legend was born.
Michael Edwards, better known as Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, is a British skier who in 1988 became the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping. At the time, he was the British ski jumping record holder, the world number nine in amateur speed skiing, and the stunt jumping world record holder. Finishing last in the 70m and 90m events, he became famous as an example of an underdog or "heroic failure", and of perseverance and achievement without funding.
