08 Apr You Don’t Get Nick Named “The Eagle” For Nothing.
Eddie Edwards gained world wide fame back in the 80’s for wanting to be on Great Britain’s Olympic Ski Jump team. His story has recently been turned into a Hollywood feature film that released around Christmas last year.
Eddie is back and Redbull was able to capture his quest for a new World Record for Toboggan Jumping. The current record held by Sven “the Sled” from Sweden at 8.2 meters. Originally thought by Eddie that the record would be much longer; the Eagle takes to the drawing board to see what needs to be done to break it. In typical Eddie The Eagle fashion, watch his attempt to shatter a record long held by a single man.
