For the 2016 Summer Olympics Batty competed for Canada, coming in as World Championships bronze medallist. At the Games she finished a close fourth to teammate Pendrel. After she said "after London with a broken collarbone, to being 10 metres from a bronze medal, it is a heartbreak. My preparation was amazing. I raced clean and I rode incredibly strong and just missed a medal by a couple of bike lengths so I have some mixed emotions."
