Ireland's Annalise Murphy is on course for a Laser Radial medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed an impressive regatta in Brazil and heads into Monday's medal race in bronze medal position.

Murphy ended the fleet racing with a sixth and seventh on Saturday, giving her a nine-point cushion over fourth ahead of the double-point medal race, 1 0 points behind leader Marit Bouwmeester.

Finn Lynch misses out on the Laser medal race after finishing 32nd in the fleet, but Matt McGovern and Ryan Seaton are third overall in the 49er class.

Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey are 12th at the halfway point of the 49erFX class.
