Eddie (the Eagle) Edwards has been barred...

Eddie (the Eagle) Edwards has been barred from competing in World Cup ski jumping events at least through the end of the current season.

The British Ski Federation said it had decided to keep the British plasterer on lower-level events for the time being. Edwards is expected to return to action soon after recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in training last December.

Edwards became a celebrity a year ago as he finished last in both the 70- and 90-meter jumps at the Winter Olympics in Calgary.
