Olympic Silver Medalist Annalise Murphy's bid for Tokyo 2020 glory has been set back with the injury news that her new sailing partner in the 49erFX dinghy campaign, Katie Tingle, suffered a broken arm during training.

Tingle, of Royal Cork Yacht Club, was brought ashore to the National Yacht Club in a RIB having suffered the fracture in training on Dublin Bay at the weekend.

NYC sailors attended to Tingle on the slipway and an ambulance was called to the East Pier club that is currently co-hosting the Laser Master World Championships.

A spokeswoman for the Olympic Sailing Team said Tingle 'broke her arm while she was out on the water' but no other update was available.

Murphy and Tingle, who did not travel to Japan with team–mates for the World Cup event on 2020 Olympic Waters, were instead due to sail this weekend at a 'Speed' event on Belfast Lough.
