Ireland's Annalise Murphy- just another J/24 sailor?

Annalise Murphy- Irish sailor rockstar- Lasers and J/24s(Howth, Ireland)- Is Annalise Murphy just another J/24 sailor at the BMW J/24 Worlds in Howth, Ireland?! Not! Annalise is also a very committed Laser Radial sailor for the Olympics 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Here's what the boys will be up against -- see video link here-- great intro to Annalise's approach to self-improvement in sailing, even when it's freezing and snowing!

Ireland’s Annalise Murphy was the early leader at the 2012 Olympic Games, winning the first four races in the Laser Radial event. Going into the final race, Annalise was one of four sailors capable of standing on the podium, but got shut out of the medals. Based on this video, released by the Irish Sports Council, Annalise is undeterred. Watch out Rio 2016!
