Rhian Edwards (born 20 January 1981) is a Welsh darts player.

Career[edit]

Edwards was a quarter finalist in the 2009 Women's World Masters. She qualified for her first BDO Women's World Championship in 2010. She defeated fellow Welshwoman Julie Gore 2-0 in the quarter-finals, and Karen Lawman 2-0 in the semi-finals. In the final, she was beaten 2-0 by Trina Gulliver.[1]

In 2011, she again reached the World Championship final after victories over Gore in the quarter-finals and Deta Hedman in the semi-finals. She was beaten 2-0 by Gulliver for the second final in a row.[2]

In 2012, Edwards was defeated in the first round by top seed and eventual runner-up Deta Hedman, but had the consolation of hitting a 155 checkout - the highest in the history of the women's world championship until the 2014 BDO World Darts Championship.

Edwards is not a full-time professional darts player, and works as a childcare nursery nurse.[3]
