Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards: Try Hard
8th June 2017£12 - £17.92
Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards is a unique British sporting hero with an incredible story to tell.
The world’s ninth-fastest amateur downhill speed skier went on to become Great Britain’s first Olympic (self-taught!) ski-jumper, who missed out on medals by some distance, but won the hearts of the nation with his plucky, positive attitude and down-to-earth persona and emerged as a star of the Calgary ’88 Winter Olympics, returning to Britain as an overnight sporting celebrity.
In Try Hard, Eddie talks through his incredible life-journey, demonstrating the steely resilience of a fearless man determined to overcome huge sporting and life hurdles.
