Eddie "the Eagle" back at Vancouver Games

6:26 am on 9 January 2010

The plucky ski jumper Eddie "the Eagle" Edwards who soared to fame at the 1988 Calgary Winter Games is back at the Olympics.

Twenty two years ago the British plasterer finished last in his event but won the hearts and imagination of the sporting world for his spirit and determination.

He's not competing but was invited to be part of the torch relay for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, which begins next month.
