Andrew burst onto the scene at the 2000 Olympic trials when he beat his personal best by 18 seconds in the 1500m Freestyle and just missed the Canadian record by 7/10ths of a second to make the Olympic team. He was then listed among the young leaders in sport for 2000 in Canada's national newspaper, The Globe and Mail.

He has been the Canadian record holder in the 400m Freestyle and he names his most memorable swimming memory as walking in the opening ceremony at the 2000 Olympic Games.

He started swimming at the age of eight and his first club was the Oakville Aquatics Club. His father was a college level swimmer at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.

Andrew started swimming at the age of eight and his first club was the Oakville Aquatics Club. Currently, he is studying civil engineering at the University of Michigan.

He plans to boldly go where no Canadian swimmer has gone before - the top of the international heap in the long distance events.
