FINIS is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Edinburgh International Swim Meet, taking place from March 13 through March 15 at the newly renovated Royal Commonwealth pool in Edinburgh, Scotland.
“FINIS is proud to support the 2015 Edinburgh International swim meet, and we are excited to build upon this great partnership in the future.”
— John Mix, FINIS, Inc. CEO
The Edinburgh International Swim Meet will host some of the finest swimmers from the United Kingdom and internationally with the likes of Anthony Ervin, Ben Proud, Calum Jarvis, and Daniel Jervis, among many others. The meet comes at a critical time, as athletes, teams, and countries are sharply focused on 16th FINA Aquatics World Championships, taking place July 24 through August 9 in Kazan, Russia. To heighten the competition, cash awards are in contention for the top three finishers in each event.
Founded in 1993 in Northern California, FINIS was started by John Mix and Olympic Gold Medal swimmer Pablo Morales. The Monofin and the Swimmer’s Snorkel were the first products they developed for the U.S. market; afterwards, they continued to focus on creating training tools for swimmers and coaches worldwide. FINIS products are currently available in over 65 countries and are used by U.S. and International Olympic teams, elite triathletes, and fitness swimmers.
Innovative research and design is FINIS’s highest priority. This dedication has resulted in truly unique products, such as the Swimmer’s Snorkel, which is recognized as the paramount tool to improve a swimmer’s technique, the Neptune MP3, which uses bone conduction technology to transmit music to the inner ear instead of using ear buds, and the Z2 Zoomers fins, which demonstrate FINIS’s intimate understanding of swimming musculature, hydrodynamics, and engineering.
