SO EVERYTHING’S GONE to sh*t in Rio right now, but remember yesterday? When Annalise Murphy won and we were so happy?

Yesterday, Murphy claimed Ireland’s first sailing medal since 1980, winning silver in the laser radial.

She celebrated later on with her family and friends – and fellow silver medallist (and newly minted internet legend) Gary O’Donovan:

Ah, would you look.

Writing on Facebook, she confessed she still shellshocked from her win:

This is a dream come true, not only for me but for everyone who has helped me get to this point over the last eight years! Thank you everyone for the amazing support, it means the world to me.

“Still in shock, but so proud to be Irish,” she continued. And we’re proud of YOU, Annalise. Bualadh bos!
