Joey Woody (born May 22, 1973 in Iowa City, Iowa) is an American track and field athlete in the 400 meter hurdles event.

Woody attended the University of Northern Iowa, where he was the 1997 NCAA champion in the 400 m hurdles. Woody placed third in the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships and qualified for the 1997 World Championships in Athens. In the 1999 World Championships in Seville, he improved to sixth place. In the 2000 US Olympic Trials, he placed fourth, therefore just missed qualifying for the 2000 Olympics. He again just missed qualifying for the 2004 Olympics.

Woody qualified for the 2003 World Championships in Paris and made it to the finals, winning the silver medal behind 2001 World Champion Félix Sánchez. This was the largest success of his running career.

Woody is now the assistant track and field distance/jumping events coach at the University of Iowa.
