Olympic silver medal-winning sailor, Annalise Murphy has expressed her appreciation to Mercedes-Benz for their support in her build-up preparations for the forthcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo, where she will compete in the Laser Radial class.
Visiting the headquarters of Mercedes-Benz, on Naas Road, Annalise outlined to their commercial vehicles sales manager, Fergus Conheady, the valued contribution her use of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup has made in enabling her to transport equipment and participate in high ranking events, that are a necessary part of the Irish Olympic training programme in the lead up to the Games.
Equipped to tow her Laser Radial, features on her double cab X-Class pickup include 4MATIC 4x4 automatic transmission, reversing camera, cruise control power, rear sliding window, roof rails, side steps and chrome style bar.
Congratulating Annalise on being ‘set fair’ to compete against the world’s best sailors in her class, Fergus Conheady conveyed to her the best wishes of the entire Mercedes-Benz organisation.
Present to wish her well was Mercedes-Benz Chief Executive, Paddy Finnegan, Commercial Vehicles Sales Manager, Fergus Conheady and Chairman of Motor Distributors Limited, Stephen O’Flaherty (pictured).
