This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Eddie received 600 pounds (after the Olympics) from the British Olympic Association for Games preparation. Eddie had to pay his own way to Calgary Canada via the USA where he did additional training. Eddie is shown traveling with the British Olympic team to the Games.
   Eddie had many 90 meter jumps and never hesitated. Eddie is shown to hesitate for a long time at the 90 meter jump; as it was his first time on the 90 meter ramp.
   Eddie injured his knee (requiring surgery) while jumping in poor conditions in a competition in Germany. No knee injures.
   Eddie goes into detail about his teenage skiing days on snow and artificial surfaces. Not much detail is shown other than a wall of awards and some of his days as a novice.
   The same day Eddie masters the 15 meter ramp he goes on to the 40 meter ramp which he finds to be not hard at all. He then decides to use the 70 meter ramp but Jay Rand tells him not to as he lacks experience. Eddie goes back to the 40 meter under the watchful eye of John Viskome who gives him valuable pointers. Eddie decides to use the 40 meter jump while Bronson Peary (fictional person) watches. Eddie crashes and badly injures himself, ending up in the hostipal with unspecified injuries.
