Annalise's Journey to Rio Starts in a Dublin Bay Winter Gale

18th April 2013
Annalise's Journey to Rio Starts in a Dublin Bay Winter Gale

#annalise – 'Even when I don't want to go training I still go out on the water'. Such is the commitment of Annalise Murphy in her campaign for Rio in three years time the 22-year-old Dubliner has been braving the snow and ice on home waters to make this video with the Irish Sports Council.

This video and others like it was officially launched this morning and can be viewed on a new sports council website intended to profile different athletes and the unseen preparation they do for the other 364 days a year before they hit the spotlight.

Lets hope RIo is this windy but maybe not as cold?

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
