Ireland's Molly Mayne will be in action at the third leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup in Doha, Qatar from Thursday, October 21 to Saturday, October 23.

Molly trains with coach Ash Morris at Hamilton Aquatics in Dubai and will compete in the 50m, 100m, 200m Breaststroke, 100m Butterfly, and 100m and 400m Individual Medley.

The 16-year-old, who began her career with Templeogue Swimming Club in Dublin, earned bronze medals in 100m and 200m Breaststroke at the most recent European Youth Olympic Festival.

She last competed for Ireland at this summer's LEN European Junior Swimming Championships in Rome, Italy, making it through to the 200m Breaststroke final with a new personal best time in a 50m pool of 2:29.55.

She also progressed to semi-finals in 50m and 100m Breaststroke, setting a new best of 31.88 in her 50m heat.

The FINA World Cup 2021 series is run in 25m format across four legs in Europe and the Middle East.

Already on this circuit Ireland's Daniel Wiffen has set new lifetime bests and a landmark Irish Senior Record in short course 1500m Freestyle.
