Izzi Batt-Doyle

Isobel Batt-Doyle (athletics) will make her Commonwealth Games debut in 2022. “Izzi” was born into a family of runners, and the Flinders Athletics Club member started Little Athletics aged 8. Within a year, Batt-Doyle tackled the City-Bay Fun Run, holding her step-dad’s hand throughout the entire 6km. After graduating from Seymour College in 2013, Izzi pursued a collegiate athletic career at St John’s University in New York, before transferring to the University of Washington in her sophomore year. Winning the 2019 Pac-12 Championships and bronze at the NCAA Division I Championships in a time of 33:17.81, the vegan athlete earned a spot on the All-America first team. With six stress fractures in her feet throughout her two-year NCAA career, she returned to Australia for a breakout 2020-2021 season, coached by partner Riley Cocks. Cleaning up at the 2020 SA State Championships, Batt-Doyle took out 10,000m honours on both track and road. Placing second at the 2021 Zatopek 10 with a time of 31:43.26, Batt-Doyle travelled the European circuit in pursuit of Olympic qualification. In her first ever European race, Batt-Doyle ran a 15:04.10 5000m PB, winning the Next Generation Athletics event in the Netherlands and earning her an Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020. Batt-Doyle took home a 15th place result from Tokyo 2020, in a time of 15:21.65. Turning her focus to her pet 10,000m event, Batt-Doyle’s 2022 has kicked up a gear. Training around 150km per week, Batt-Doyle secured a 31:40.10 PB at the British 10,000m Championships and a position on the 10,000m starting line at Birmingham. Isobel is a Master’s and PhD candidate in clinical psychology at Flinders University, undertaking research into the field of eating disorders. She and her partner Riley Cocks run RunAsOne, a coaching business serving 200+ runners.
