Annalise Murphy produced a stunning performance in the Laser Medial Race to secure the silver medal at the Olympics.
The Dubliner began the final race in third spot overall but a polished display saw her confirm a medal and also leapfrog Danish rival Anne-Marie Rindom into second place.
Murphy was in contention for gold at one point as she led the final race but the Dutch sailor Marit Bouwmeester upped the gears and held on to take gold.
It was extra special for the woman from Rathfarnham after she agonisingly missed out on a medal four years ago, finishing in fourth spot overall at the London games.
The race took place a day later than planned after poor weather conditions in Guanabara Bay meant yesterday's schedule was unable to take place.
Not long after the race got underway Murphy's closest rival for the bronze medal, Evi Van Acker, was hit with an early penalty.
This took much of the heat off the Irish athlete and she took full advantage of this to try for a higher place on the podium, eventually, deservedly grabbing the second silver medal of the games for her country.
The medal is Ireland's first in sailing since Moscow 1980 and just reward for Murphy's dedication to her craft and expertise honed through endless hours of hard work.
