Molly Scott's impressive form continued at the Czech Indoor Gala in Ostrava on Thursday, with the Irish record holder defeating European indoor champion Ajla del Ponte in the 60m final.

Scott, who set an Irish record of 7.23 seconds at the IUAA Track & Field Intervarsities in Athlone on Saturday, clocked 7.25 to edge out Del Ponte at the World Athletics Indoor Tour Silver event. The Swiss sprinter finished fifth in the 100m Olympic final last year.

Unbeaten indoors this season, Scott is next scheduled to compete in Glasgow on Saturday.

Sarah Healy and Nadia Power both lined up the 1500m final, with Healy placing third in a new Irish Under-23 record time of four minutes and 11 seconds.

Power set a new personal best of 4:13.60 to finish fifth.
