Annalise's Olympic bid gets Mercedes-Benz backing
Mercedes-Benz has added further wind to the sail of Irish sailing star Annalise Murphy as she ramps up her preparations for the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics, due to take place later this year.
In a move that sees Mercedes-Benz retain its status as the only vehicle manufacturer supporting Annalise’s bid for further Olympic glory, the company has renewed their backing for the 31-year old Rathfarnham native who will continue to drive a top-of-the-range X-Class pickup for use in transporting her Laser Radial, her team and her equipment to events, here in Ireland and overseas.
Finished in the now familiar yet eye-catching Kabara black, silver and grey livery, her 190hp X-Class is festooned with features fit for a sailing star. Amongst them are 4MATIC 4x4 automatic transmission, chrome style bar, reversing camera, cruise control power, rear sliding window and a style pack that includes roof rails and side steps.
Wishing the Olympic silver medal winner every success on her road to Tokyo, Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles sales manager, Fergus Conheady says: “Mercedes-Benz is proud to extend its support to one of Ireland’s leading medal contenders in her quest to achieve further success.”
