Eddie the Eagle is in Winnipeg to run with the Olympic Flame and already he can’t keep his feet on the ground and is Ice Climbing! The British ski jumper who became famous during the 1988 Calgary Olympics met up with myself to tackle the only urban Ice Tower in Canada which is run by the CESB. The Video of this experience will be posted soon at Travel with the Torch. Eddie the Eagle is an international torchbearer with the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay: Read more about CTC and VANOC International Torchbearers
