Bio: Batkovic burst on to the scene as part of the Lauren Jackson and Penny Taylor team that claimed the 1999 WNBL Championship with the AIS. This led to the Newcastle-native becoming a staple in the Jayco Opals squad, helping the team win bronze at the 2002 FIBA World Championships.

This caught the attention of international suitors, with Batkovic selected by the Seattle Storm in the 2003 WNBA Draft. The 192cm centre would spend the next seven seasons aboard, winning the 2004 Euroleague title with French team Valencienne along with stints in the WNBA, Spain, Russia and Italy.

During this time Batkovic was ever present in the Opals squad, twice winning the Maher Medal for International Player of the Year (2001 & 2008) and helping the team claim the silver medal at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Games.

Returning to the WNBL, it was for the Adelaide Lightning where Batkovic was at her best, winning back-to-back WNBL Most Valuable Player awards – sandwiched between a third Olympic medal (bronze) at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

After two successful seasons in Adelaide, Batkovic made the move to the Townsville Fire for the 2013/14 season claiming her third successive WNBL MVP Award, and in the process, becoming the first player in the league’s history to do so.

During another stellar campaign in 2014/15, Batkovic guided the Fire to their maiden WNBL crown.
