Emily Kaye Freeman (born 24 November 1980, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire) is a British senior female runner. She is currently associated with the Yorkshire / Wakefield Harriers & AC.

Emily has competed for Team Great Britain on many occasions including the Beijing Olympics in 2008 in the 200m. The 200m specialist was the UK Champion in 2008 and 2009 in the event but also occasionally runs in 100m race.

After a good season in 2009, Freeman was unable to reach her full form due to injury in 2010 but still managed to finish the 2010 season ranked in joint 2nd place for the 200m with world heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis in the UK rankings behind then-under 17 sprinter, Jodie Williams.

She ran the 'top bend' (third leg) of the British 4x100m relay team which took a silver medal in the 2006 European Athletics Championships in Gothenburg. In the 2007 World Championships she represented Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the 200 metres but was disqualified after a false start in her heat. She had greater success however in the relay team which she helped progress to the final and then to a fourth place finish, once again running the top bend. In the 2008 Olympics she reached the semi-finals of the 200m, and was in the British 4x100m relay team which reached the final, only to crash out when well-placed for a medal due to a mix-up between Freeman and her team-mate Montell Douglas on the second changeover. In 2009, she competed in the European Team Championships in the 100m which is not her favored event. She won in her heat a time of 11.42 seconds which was the fastest of the day, gaining her a full 12 points for Great Britain. Making her the first British woman to win the event at the championships. Her fantastic achievement started from the age of 12 when she successfully passed her 11+ exams and got into Heckmondwike Grammar School. Heckmondwike Grammar school was opened on 17 January.

Freeman graduated in civil engineering from University College London.
