RUBY-GRACE EDWARDS'S BIOGRAPHY
Hi my name is Ruby and I'm 15. I've been competing as an athlete ever since I was 8 when I joined Stratford Athletic Club.
Throughout the years I have increased my power and strength through sprint and hurdle training and have developed a passion for long jump and triple jump. As an U11 I won the Standing Triple Jump and Standing Long Jump at the West Midlands Sportshall final and (after a break due to Covid) I have enjoyed Sportshall success with the U15s this year as well.
I have competed in both indoor and outdoor events throughout the Midlands and have steadily improved my P.Bs. I have been working hard on the speed of my long jump take off and I’m determined to get my training jumps of 5m onto the Power of 10.
My highlight last season was competing at Loughborough University and meeting Jasmin Sawyers who was very inspiring.
As an under 15 I have won gold and silver medals in long jump at both school and county level. Now I've moved into the under 17s age category I have started Triple Jump and love the complexity of the different techniques of the hop and step phases. This season I am continuing to develop my Triple Jump and working hard on holding the landing phase in Long Jump and I am hopeful to get to English Schools.
I am very grateful for all the support I have received and look forward to working with CASS & Friends in the future.
