Mercedes-Benz adds X-Class backing to Annalise’s Olympic bid

0

Mercedes-Benz has extended its support of Olympic silver medal-winning sailor Annalise Murphy as she continues her preparations to represent Ireland in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Annalise Murphy is pictured with her new X-Class pickup which is soon to be a familiar sight at 49er FX sailing events. With her is Stephen Byrne and Fergus Conheady of Mercedes-Benz.

Renewing her ‘Tier One’ partnership arrangement, the 29-year old Rathfarnham sailing star has been provided with a new X-Class pickup to transport her team, herself and her equipment to events, here in Ireland and overseas.

‘Having the Mercedes-Benz X-Class is a major boost to my training regime and my ambitions for Tokyo. I am really looking forward to giving my preparation the X-tra power that the stylish new X-Class delivers,’ Annalise commented.

Soon to be a regular sight at 49er FX sailing events, the 190hp X-Class is finished in the now familiar yet eye-catching Kabara black, silver and grey livery similar to that on her previous Mercedes-Benz Vito Mixto van.

Equipped to tow her 49er FX, its features include 4MATIC 4×4 automatic transmission, chrome style bar, bed liner and bed cover in body-matching colour, reversing camera, cruise control power, rear sliding window and a style pack that includes roof rails and side steps.

Wishing Annalise every success on her road to Tokyo, Fergus Conheady, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles, said: ‘we are proud to continue our support for Annalise, one of Ireland’s most admired Olympians.’
