#Annalise - Ireland’s Olympic hero Annalise Murphy tells her sailing story as she drives through Dublin in her Mercedes-Benz Vito Mixto to one of her daily training sessions at Dun Laoghaire’s National Yacht Club.
But first and foremost in her plans is a spot to represent her home country — and take gold — in Tokyo three years from now.
Speaking of her success in Brazil last summer, she says: “When all of my training and preparation came together and I stood on the podium at the end, it was an amazing feeling – and proof, that our master plan paid off!”
But as good as she was on Guanabara Bay, Sagami Bay should expect to see an even better Annalise.
“I know that I can improve,” she says. “I’m curious to see how much more I can get out of myself. Winning the gold medal would be a dream come true.”
