Eden Francis

 
Eden started athletics at the age of 10 when her mother took up coaching. Having tried a multitude of events from running and jumping and she finally found her calling, throwing. In 2004, at just 15, she was awarded her first England vest and later that season her first GB vest. From there she went from strength to strength topping rankings and competing in competitions such as the Commonwealth Youth Games and World Youth championships.
 
After breaking the British U20 record in 2007, 2008 saw her become the first Brit to win Gold in the discus at the winter throwing cup. In 2009, she again made history by becoming the first British woman to win gold at the European U23 championships. That year she also gained my first senior GB vest.
Since then she has repeatedly topped British rankings and claimed numerous British Championship medals. Her latest achievement was making the final top 8 in both the shot and discus at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and winning Gold at the UK indoor championships. 
 
Her long term goal is to become a multiple Olympian, Rio 2016 is just the begining!
