About "A Time to Jump (Jonathan Edwards)"
Jonathan Edwards became an instant celebrity when he broke a 10-year-old world record for the triple jump at Gothenburg in 1995. Here, he charts his struggle to reach the top in his sporting career. At the core of Edwards' life has been his Christian faith. He became known as the athlete who refused to compete on Sundays, a decision which led him to miss the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo. He later reversed this decision as he came to believe that he had been given a gift and it was his responsibility to use it.
