Annalise Murphy has followed up her fourth place finish in Race 3 in the Rio 2016 Women's Laser Radial with a seventh place finish in Race 4.

Murphy was up as high as second after three marks in the fourth race of the event but ended up settling for seventh.

That came in a time of 53:38. 


That latest result now means Murphy continues to keep hold of second place overall with six more races to go ahead of the medal race.
