Livermore, CALIFORNIA (October 18, 2016) – FINIS, Inc., a worldwide leader in technical swimming innovation, is proud to announce a new partnership with Dave Scott. Scott is a six-time Ironman World Champion and the first triathlete ever inducted into the Ironman Hall of Fame. 

Scott’s remarkable run of Ironman World Championships through the 1980s earned him international fame in the sport. He is known by the nickname “The Man” for his intense training regimens and is widely considered the progenitor that changed the Ironman from a test of endurance into a race. 

Scott competed in Ironman World Championships from 1980 until 2001, when he finished his remarkable athletic career at the age of 47. Scott now works as a triathlon coach and consultant, training beginner to elite-level triathletes all over the world.  Dave is committed to helping his athletes constantly evolve and refine their swimming technique, so that they can unlock their potential for the entire race.

“I personally love FINIS products because they consistently create tools that truly help swimmers, “ says Scott. “I believe that the swimming leg of the race is key in a successful performance.  Using FINIS training products, athletes are able to improve technique and build strength for a faster swim.”

FINIS and Scott plan to further educate triathletes all over the world on how to improve their technique and maximize their swim by utilizing FINIS training tools. 

“Dave Scott is the man when it comes to triathlon and we are so excited to be working together to help triathletes find their breakthrough moment in the water,” says FINIS CEO and Cofounder John Mix.
