Annalise Murphy has finished 12th overall at the 2020 ILCA Laser Radial World Championships in Melbourne.

The 2016 Olympic silver medalist had been eighth overall after Thursday's action, having also won Tuesday's race three.

Only one race sailed on Friday due to lack of wind and Murphy was forced to retire from the gold race following yellow penalty flags, dropping her out of the reckoning for a top ten finish overall on 86 points.

Howth Yacht Club's Aoife Hopkins finished the gold race in 31st, as she finished up 40th overall.

Netherlands' Olympic gold medalist Marit Bouwmeester won the overall championship after finishing 29th in the gold race, which was won by France's Marie Barrue.

Bouwmeester, who won five of the ten races, finished first with 42 points ahead of Dutch compatriot Maxime Jonker.

The silver race featured Irish duo Aisling Keller and Eve McMahon who finished 10th and 25th.
