Darvin Edwards - St.Lucian Qualifier for the 2012 Olympics

St.Lucia's Men's High Jump qualifier for the 2012 London Olympics is Darvin Edwards. He is currently in St.Lucia training with Gregory Lubin.


"Qualifying for the 2012 Olympics was amazing for me, especially given what I had been going through in 2010, when I sustained a serious injury that kept me out of competition. Being in a foreign land, with no immediate job prospects and a young family to support, it was a very challenging time for me. By the grace of God, with help from my family, friends and a British coach, I came back stronger than ever in 2011. 

I set new personal-best marks three times last season, won a CAC medal, set a new OECS record and then had the experience of a lifetime when I traveled to Daegu, South Korea, for the IAAF World Championships. I was the first to clear the automatic qualifying height for the finals, a new personal-best, and a new National Record and OECS record. The only way to top that experience is to be in the best shape of my life for the Olympics this year, to be more technically prepared than I have ever been. I intend to set a new record in London, and if I do that, I am confident that I will make the top eight. And from there, anything can happen!" - Darwin Edwards
