Eloise Wellings

Eloise Wellings (athletics) is a four-time Commonwealth Games representative who boasts an impressive record of making four straight top-10 finishes in the women’s 5000m finals. Born in New York, Wellings had qualified to represent Australia at the Sydney 2000 Olympics as a 16-year-old yet sadly an injury forced her out of the Games. Making her Australian Team debut at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, Wellings finished fourth in the women’s 5000m final, returning at the Delhi 2010 Games to finish fifth in 5000m and sixth in the 10000m. At the Glasgow 2014 Games, Wellings enjoyed another strong showing in the 5000m finishing fifth. At the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Wellings finished eighth in the 5000m and 16th in the 10000m. A two-time Olympian, Wellings competed London 2012 Olympics, finishing 21st in the 10000m final, and 10th in the 10000m final at the Rio 2016 Olympics. After COVID-19 disruptions, Wellings withdrew from qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. In 2021, Wellings has turned her attention to long distances becoming an elite marathon runner, recently making the qualification time for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Away from the track, Wellings co-founded a foundation called Love Mercy, a foundation to help communities in northern Uganda overcome poverty after decades of civil war.
