Bermuda Olympian Roy Allan Burch has been named as the Lake Norman Charter School Head Swim Coach.
“I was looking for jobs in the area in fields I was interested in and I came across the open Head Coach position at Lake Norman Charter, the school is near my house so it was perfect,” said Burch, who is now himself also back in Training.
Burch went on to say, “Once I sent in my resume they wanted to hire me.”
When asked what he plans to bring to the school, Burch said, “There is a lot I can bring to the table for the school. It's not an overly aggressive training schedule which made it a good fit for me.”

The race looms as a mouth-watering contest with the battle for the world title likely to come down to a matter of seconds.
In the red corner is the challenger Flora Duffy. The uber biker from Bermuda has had a career best season and sits at the top of the rankings. Finishing first or second here will guarantee her a maiden world title.
In the blue corner is the reigning world champion, Gwen Jorgensen. The American recently added the Olympic gold medal to her near perfect short course CV. She is looking to become the first woman to win three consecutive world titles. Should she do that, she would also join Emma Snowsill as the only athletes to have won three world titles and an Olympic gold medal.

Judy Simons, President of the Bermuda Olympic Association ("BOA") today expressed her condolences on behalf of the BOA to the loved ones of Mr. Philip R. Guishard who passed away yesterday at the age of 74.
Mr. Guishard served as Secretary General of the BOA for the past eight years, overseeing the day-to-day functioning of the Association and liaising with the International Olympic Committee, Central American and Caribbean Sports Organisation, Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees, Association of National Olympic Committees, Pan American Sports Organisation and Commonwealth Games Federation. In 2012 he was elected to the Commonwealth Games Federation Sports Committee as the representative for the Americas Region.
Prior to becoming Secretary General in 2008, Mr. Guishard had served as a member of the BOA for 12 years.
During his involvement with the BOA, Mr. Guishard also served as Chef de Mission for the Bermuda teams at several Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games, and was the BOA's representative on the Bermuda Sport Anti-Doping Authority ("BSADA").
Mrs. Simons said, "Philip's knowledge of the Olympic movement was amazing. He had a passion for the Games and believed strongly in the benefits that sporting involvement by our young people could bring to their lives and to our community. As an athlete himself, Philip had admiration and empathy for our country's young athletes, and was an enthusiastic fan and a voice of support for all of them.
"As a longstanding member of the BOA, he was well known, respected and considered a friend by many of his peers within National Olympic Committees around the world. On behalf of the Board, staff and volunteers at the BOA, I'd like to express our deepest sympathies to Philip's family and friends. He was a man of integrity and a consummate professional, and we will miss him dearly."
