Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards wanted to become the first British Olympic ski jumper. So, in 1988, he did.
Edwards' story is now the subject of "Eddie the Eagle," a biopic opening Feb. 26. The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have an exclusive clip in which The Eagle (Taron Egerton) announces his dream to his parents (Jo Hartley and Keith Allen) before dashing off to train with his coach (Hugh Jackman). Anyone planning to declare their left-field Olympic ambitions should take notes.
