Aarsleff were delighted to meet with the Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, who first hit headlines when he qualified for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Largely self-funded and at times self-trained, he was the first Brit to compete in the ski jump. Hearing Eddie’s story first hand – how a plasterer from Cheltenham was able to capture the world’s imagination and achieve his dream, despite coming in last place in both the 60 and 90-metre competitions, was truly heart-warming.
