This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Eddie hones his downhill racing skills in Italy. He challenges Nino Viale, a local champion to a race with the prize of asking June, the company rep, out on a date. He seriously injures his back in a crash. This does not happen, June and Nino do not appear in the movie. Eddie's most serious injury is during his first 40 meter jump where he ends up in the hospital.
   Eddie qualified with a 71 meter jump while training in Finland and living at a mental hospital. He qualified with a 61 meter jump in Germany.
   Eddie met Princess Diana twice while in Calgary. This did not happen.
   Eddie gets involved in a stunt with him on skies strapped to the top of a fast car but fails to set a speed record due to an inadequate straightaway. Eddie is shown training as a jumper while on top of his van while his coach drives.
   This doesn't happen. The other British athletes at the Games treat Eddie poorly and haze him.
