royallanburchRoy-Allan Burch remains upbeat about his chances of competing at this summer’s Olympics in Rio.

The SwimMac Carolina swimmer has made a miraculous recovery from a potential career-ending injury and will resume his quest to qualify for a third straight Olympics at next month’s Canadian Trials in Toronto.

The Olympic qualifying mark for the 50-metres freestyle event is 23.05 sec, which Burch feels is still within his reach.
