Eedle has consistently been at the top of Australian Junior Rhythmic gymnastics since 2012. 

Competing strongly on a national and international level, Eedle is getting better with age.

At the 2016 Pacific Rim Championships she won a silver medal for the Hoop apparatus which has been her best result to date. 

The performances Eedle has displayed at the Australian Gymnastics Championships (AGC) in the past have been dominant. Most notably, she's the three time All Around AGC defending champion leading into the 2016 competition.
