This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The British Ski Association required that Eddie jump at least 71 meters to qualify for the Olympics. It was not a surprise. He was required to jump 61 meters. This was told to him after he had assumed he qualified by being the only ski jumper on the British team.
   Eddie jumped with cameras attached to his body for an American camera crew. Did not happen.
   After the 90 meter jump and prior to the closing ceremony Eddie appeared on the Tonight Show where he met Burt Reynolds. Did not happen.
   Members of Eddie's family sometimes join him on the road between ski meets. His family is never with him during the skiing tours.
   Eddie enters a Nodic Combined event in Lake Placid but is only able to do the downhill and jumping portion as he lack any cross country gear. Eddie is never shown entering a Nordic Combined event.
