Annalise Wins Bronze Medal in Weymouth

Expectations were high and Annalise Murphy delivered in style in Weymouth this afternoon. The 21 year old National Yacht Club sailor has taken bronze at the Sail for Gold Regatta.

The medal did not come without extra drama. The Dun Laoghaire single-hander was in third position in this morning's medal race but collided with Belgian competitor Eva Van Icker and was forced to take a 360 degree penatly turn.

Annalise still managed to finish sixth and third overall, four points ahead of Britain's Charlotte Dobson.
