Eddie "The Eagle" sets tobbogan jumping world record

What happens when an Olympian takes up the sport of tobogganing? World records, that’s what.

If you didn’t know who Eddie the Eagle Edwards was before, you most certainly should now – the Hollywood biopic about his life, starring Hugh Jackman, has now been released worldwide. If you haven’t had a chance to watch it, we’ll give you the basics: a construction worker from England realises his only chance at the Olympics is by entering as Britain’s only ski jumper, a sport he’s never done before – and a dangerous one at that.

But this video isn’t about the Hugh Jackman, the movie, or even about ski-jumping. It’s about tobaggan-jumping – and Eddie the Eagle is the new (and only) world record-holder.
