By PJ Browne Updated

Molly Scott set a new Irish women's 60m record at the Irish Universities Athletics Association Indoor Championships on Saturday.

The Carlow sprinter ran 7.23 at the TUS International Arena in Athlone to break Amy Foster's three-year-old record. Earlier in the day, Scott had equalled Foster's mark when she ran 7.27.

"7.23 NATIONAL 60M RECORD," Scott wrote on Twitter.

"I’m the fastest Irish woman EVER indoors. A dream I’ve had since I was 10. To do this with my Mam as my coach makes it that more special. Excited for what’s to come."

Her time is also well inside the qualifying standard for the World Indoor Athletics Championships which take place in Belgrade in early March.
