In the Book In the Movie
   Eddie is sponsored by Fred Coombes, 5000 pounds. Eddie never receives any sponsorship prior to the Olympics.
   Eddie injured his knee (requiring surgery) while jumping in poor conditions in a competition in Germany. No knee injures.
   Eddie received lots of publicity as the only British person representing the ski jumping world in European competitions prior to the 1988 Olympics. No recognition for Eddie until the Olympic games.
   At a competition in Norway where the competition was at a high level, the officials bent the rules a bit and let Eddie start a bit higher on the ramp, they even gave him a push. No advantages given to Eddie.
   Geir Hammer, a Norwegian coach was a great help to Eddie while training in 1987 in Switzerland. Eddie jumped a personal best of 91 meters during practice. The Norwegian coach depicted was an obstacle to Eddie's progress and provided no help at all.
