Carlow’s Molly Scott will be flying the flag for Ireland at this summer’s World Athletics Championships.
Set to be staged in Eugene, Oregon (US) from 15-24 July, Scott has been included in the Women’s 4x100m relay team, announced Friday 1 July.
Via Athletics Ireland, “as per published policy, athletes were eligible for selection by having either attained an ‘A’ standard or by having attained a ‘B’ standard and be ranked within quota on the World Rankings in their event. Athletes selected in any individual event or relay were also eligible for selection in any other event in which they were ranked within quota on the World Rankings, regardless of having attained a ‘B’ standard.”
In a busy season for our performance athletes, several have planned their year around the European Championships and have opted to forego the World Championships in this instance, including Ciara Mageean, Fionnuala McCormack and Phil Healy.
