Roy Allan Burch Featured On Catalog Cover

December 5, 2014

FINIS, a world leader in technical swimming products, is featuring Bermuda’s Roy Allan Burch on the cover of the official 2015 Product Catalog.

Burch first joined Team FINIS in May of 2013. Since then, he has continued to excel, and now lives in North Carolina and trains under renowned coach Dave Marsh among some of the world’s most elite athletes.


Burch currently holds eight Bermuda National Records; most recently, improving his 50m Free time with a time of 21.81 at the FINA Short Course World Swimming Championships in Doha, Qatar.

The two-time Olympian aims to represent Bermuda at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, which would be his third Olympic appearance, a notably rare accomplishment in the world of swimming.

When thinking about the next Olympic games, Burch quickly refers to his favorite inspirational quote: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
