Day 5: Activity 1 - Eddie the Eagle By: Shanya

Eddie is a boy that wants to be an athlete but he wasn't that good at the sports. So he tried skiing and he never gave up even when he hurt himself and had to go to the hospital. Eddie was declined in every team he was in, but now he wasn't. He had a couch that held the record!


  1. He did have a coach who held the record in ski jumping. That is quite an accomplishment, isn't it? I have never tried ski jumping but, from what I've seen, it looks pretty dangerous. I really admire Eddie (Michael Edwards) for even attempting the sport in the first place! He was a very determined man who pursued his dreams until he realised them. I think that he is quite inspirational.

    What do you think about Eddie? Do you think that he was brave and courageous or a little bit crazy? Some of our Winter Learning Journey participants think that he was foolish to chase his dream of representing Britain at an Olympics. They think that he should have been more realistic about his abilities. What do you think? I'd love to know!

    Keep up the awesome blogging, Shanya. You are a star!

    Cheers, Rachel :)

  2. I think that he was really determined and hopeful, because he never gave up even when he got left out of the team.
