For the first time in (our) memory, a major swimming company placed an open water swimmer so prominently in its product catalog.

John Mix, who co-founded FINIS in 1993 and distributes unique, innovative products in 80 countries, has always been a strong supporter of open water swimming.

But placing an open water swimmer in the 2017-2018 FINA product catalog, using one of his signature products, is really a step up and greatly appreciated by those who use FINIS snorkels, Agility Paddles and other bits of training equipment.
