She finished 18th and 12th in Races 7 and 8 to slip down the order
Annalise Murphy has slipped back to third in the Women's Laser Radial after a tough day on the water.
The Team Ireland sailor finished 18th in Race 7 as she and her competitors resumed action after Thursday's rest day, which she had gone into in the overall lead.
She then followed up the Race 7 result with 12th in Race 8.
Little slip there at the end but puts in a solid 12th! Tough day on the water but still right in the mix for the medals! #COYGIG— Annalise Murphy (@Annalise_Murphy) August 12, 2016
Those two results dropped her back from the overall lead but she remains in contention for the lead in third behind current leader Denmark's Anne-Marie Rindom and Marit Bouwmeester of Netherlands.
In the men's competition, Finn Lynch finished 33rd in Race 7 and 30th in 8th to leave him 29th overall.
