Edmond developed a passion for running in secondary school. He first came into contact with the triple jump during Form 4.
“The first time I tried triple jump was to help my school qualify for the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Competition. I hadn’t had formal training – the coach had seen me do long jump before, so he invited me to join. I did not get any record in my first competition due to the three fouls. But I’m the kind of person who is motivated by failure. I will keep trying until I succeed. Besides, I really love the feeling of staying in the air.” Since then, Edmond started to train in triple jump and running simultaneously.
