Annalise Murphy's brother Finn set to miss Olympic medal race after postponement

Very few of us will know who Annalise Murphy's brother is but we all owe him a huge debt of gratitude.
Finn Murphy has been posting updates on Annalise's Twitter and Facebook pages throughout the laser radial competition and without live TV coverage, his input has been invaluable to sailing fans trying to follow his sister's exploits.
Unfortunately, Finn is due to fly home tomorrow morning in Rio and now looks set to miss his sister's fight for an Olympic podium position.
Fingers crossed that someone may be able to intervene so that Finn can remain in Rio.
