James Royce Sharp (born May 25, 1972) is an American former competition swimmer who represented the United States at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Sharp competed in the preliminary heats of the men's 200-meter backstroke, and finished with the eighteenth-best time overall (2:00.97). His winning time in the U.S. Olympic Trials was over two seconds faster, and the equivalent time would have won a medal in Barcelona.[1]
