In 2019, Mollie was selected to represent Australia at the Junior World Championships where she won silver in the 4x100m freestyle relay.
A year later, she swam 52.10s at the Queensland Short-Course Championships setting a new Australian 16-years ago group record for 100m freestyle.
At the 2020 Queensland State titles she collected four gold medals, dominating all the backstroke evens (50m, 100m, 200m) and the 50m butterfly.
An impressive performance at the 2021 Olympic Trials saw the 17-year-old tie with Meg Harris for 5th in the 200m freestyle final in Adelaide, more than half-a-second under the Olympic qualifying time.
Mollie will make her Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2021 Games.
