In the kayaking at Long Beach, 39-year-old Browne won silver in the 500m.
It means Ireland have claimed a total on 33 medals in the five days of competition.
In the equestrian events, Team Ireland earned two gold medals in the dressage through Elizabeth Mair from Rathfarnham, Dublin, and John Deevy of Kilmeadan in County Waterford.
Commenting on her second place, kayaker Browne said: "I have got a silver medal to bring back home to Strabane - it feels great!
"Everyone was shouting for me to get the medal when I was out on the water, I could hear them really clearly.
"I feel proud and happy and I am looking forward to taking the medal home with me."
