Dynamic New Athletics or DNA is an innovative, team-based competition concept for athletics created by European Athletics to complement the classic athletics format which will be held at the Emirate’s Stadium in Glasgow on February 5.
Ireland will be taking on teams from Scotland, England, Wales, Spain, and Turkey across 11 track and field events to gather points to decide their position going into the decider event “The Hunt”.
Molly has been selected to do the women’s 60m sprint.
Molly, who’s coached by her mother Deirdre Scott was at the 2021 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Poland where she placed seventh after winning gold earlier in the year at the Irish Life Health Elite Athlete Indoor Micro Meet both races clocking in at 7.37 just outside her personal best time for this event which is 7.32.
