Athlete Biography

Edwina ‘Eddie’ Bone played her 100th game for the Australian hockey team in March 2016. Five months later she will make her Olympic debut in Rio as a defender for the Hockeyroos.

Born in Orange, in Central West NSW, Bone spent two years in Hockey Australia’s women’s development program in Canberra. She progressed through the junior ranks with the Canberra Strikers alongside fellow Hockeyroo Anna Flanagan, before she broke through to the senior squad when she moved to Perth in 2013.

In her international debut year, she won gold at the 2013 Oceania Cup in New Zealand and silver at the 2013 World League Finals in Argentina.

The defender established herself as a regular in the team after winning gold at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and silver at the World Cup in the Netherlands and Champions Trophy in Argentina.

Bone completed a Bachelor of Sports Management from the University of Canberra in 2009. Her twin sister, Meredith is also a UC student, playing hockey for the Canberra national side and hoping to follow in her sister’s sporting footsteps.
