BIOGRAPHY

Perth-born Eilidh Doyle began her sporting career as a swimmer before choosing athletics – where she first caught the eye with European Under-23 silver in 2009, while her upwards curve continued resulting in selection for the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

She reached the 400m hurdles semi-finals having run below the 55 second-barrier for the first time that year, but it was 2014 that proved the landmark for the Scot,  emerging victorious at the first-ever Diamond League meeting in Scotland at the Glasgow Grand Prix.

Silver at the Commonwealth Games in the same city also followed, while Olympic glory was to come her way in 2016, joining Anyika Onuora, Emily Diamond and Christine Ohuruogu in picking up 4x400m bronze in Rio.

Success was to still come her way on and off the track, named as team captain for Great Britain at her home 2017 London World Championships. She claimed silver in the 4x400m relay and eighth in the individual competition.
