Biography

Edwards was born on December 5, 1963, in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, UK. He has a sister, Liz, who is two years younger as well as a brother.

When actor Taron Egerton was asked by Oklahoman how did he learn to ski jump for the film, Taron responded: ”I never skied before.” Egerton continued: ”So I had to go out to Germany a couple of weeks early and make sure I could ski.”

In 2017, Eddie made some jumps at the ski jumping facilities at Canada Olympic Park. Edwards said: ”I haven’t jumped for a long, long time.” Eddie continued: ”twenty years, I think, ’97 was the last time I did any jumping.”

In June 2003, Eddie the Eagle married Samantha Morton. In 2014, Samantha broke up with Michael. They got divorced in 2016. He said in an interview: ”Losing my marriage and my family life hurts more than anything that ever happened to me in ski-jumping.”

Career

In 1987, Edwards represented Great Britain at the World Championships. He was ranked 55th in the world but was qualified for the 1988 Winter Olympics ski-jumping competition.

The 1988 Winter Olympics was held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Eddie became the first British ski jumper to compete in the Olympics since 1929. He later said:”After Calgary, I was getting three or four marriage proposals every day from all over the world.”

He often ate food scavenged from campsite bins since Michael had neither a sponsor nor a coach. During the 1988 Winter Olympics, he finished last in both the 70 meters and 90 meters events.

Following the 1988 Winter Games, the International Olympic Committee instituted a rule known as the “Eddie the Eagle Rule.” According to CBC, the rule requires Olympic hopefuls to finish in the top half of an international competition.
