The true story of Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards is an inspiration to many. The British ski-jumper seemed like an unlikely competitor to represent the United Kingdom in the Olympics, but he never gave up on himself. With the help of his unconventional coach, Bronson Peary, Eddie the Eagle shows the world that he is not yet ready to be counted out of the competition just yet. As a true underdog, he wins the hearts of sports fans and also wins his way into the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Eddie must continually prove to himself, the Olympic judges, his coach, and the world that he is made of the same stuff that winners are made of. His never-say-die attitude keeps him working hard to prove that he will do his country and his fans proud as he competes against the rest of the world during the Winter Games in Calgary, Canada.
