Lawrence Swimmer Falls Short of Olympic Berth

17-year old Michael Andrew of Lawrence is competing in the Olympic swimming trials in Omaha.

At the Olympic swimming trials in Omaha last (MON) night, 17-year old Michael Andrew of Lawrence competed against the best in the world in his first event final, the 100-meter breast. He finished fourth, but improved on his times from the prelims the day before. Andrew says that just being able to compete with the country’s best swimmers was a great honor.

The top two finishers in the trials qualify for the Olympics in Rio. ​​Andrew is scheduled to swim in four more events at the trials this week in Omaha.
