Tokyo 2020: Team Ireland profiles - Annalise Murphy (Sailing)

Murphy sets sights on a second medal at her third Games

Age: 31

Event: Laser Radial

Club: National Yacht Club

From Rathfarnham in south Dublin, Murphy will be competing in her third Olympics; in London 2012, she came agonisingly close to a medal, finishing fourth after being in medal position for long stages. Undaunted, she finished second in Rio 2016, winning an Olympic silver. Back competing in this Olympic category after taking a short break after Rio, when Murphy temporarily switched her focus to the Volvo Ocean Race.
