Headshot_EmilyBattyEmily Batty may consider herself a “girly girl” but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a tough competitor. She made her Olympic debut at London 2012, racing just days after breaking her right collarbone in training. She was taped up and pushed through the pain to finish 24th. Batty had been enjoying a breakthrough season leading up to the Games, reaching the World Cup podium for the first time in March 2012 in what was just her second season as an elite racer. She continued her rise in 2014, winning silver at the Commonwealth Games behind teammate Catharine Pendrel and finishing a career-high sixth at the UCI World Championships.
