Name: Annalise Murphy
Event: Sailing - laser radial
Olympic Silver medalist Annalise Murphy will compete at her third Olympic Games this summer and hopes are high for the Rathfarnham sailor.
Murphy agonisingly missed out on a medal at London 2012 when she finished fourth, but righted that wrong in Rio four years later when she claimed the silver medal. In Tokyo the National Yacht Club member will aim to go one better.
Having stepped away from the Laser Radial after Rio in order to compete in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/2018. Murphy also partnered Katie Tingle in the 49er FX for a spell but as the Tokyo Games drew closer, her attention has returned to the Laser Radial and she's confident that she can make a major impact in Japan.
"I think the conditions in Tokyo could suit me, and I know I work harder than anyone else out there - so I'm ready for a good competition, and we have a good team out there," she said.
