Lesson Learned from Eddie The Eagle Movie

Stories to Live By, Never Give Up

At the closing ceremony of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, the chief executive officer of the Olympics Committee said to the athletes, “You have captured our hearts and filled our memories.  You have broken world records and you even established personal best.”  Looking over his shoulder at the competitors of 57 countries, he continued “Some of you… have even soared like an eagle.”

At the mention of English ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, 60,000 voices in McMahon stadium roared like one.

28 years later, the Eagle is still soaring and will continue to capture the hearts of the people.  Eddie’s legacy was cemented in the annals of Olympic history for inspiring people of his relentless attitude, and undying spirit to compete.   By the way, Eddie was the goat of the ski jumping events.  Yes, that was not a typo, Eddie did not win any medals at all.

But beneath the weight of a 200-pound brass diving suit, his legs were no longer strong enough to hold him. He collapsed, barely conscious.
