It’s no jump to conclusions, suggesting one pool in Lawrence is filled with a potential Olympic star.

Fourteen-year-old Michael Andrew has swimming speed that already rivals that of Olympians. But unlike other young athletes, he’s already turned pro.

During a recent event in Minnesota, Andrew became the youngest male in history to swim the 100M breaststroke in under 56 seconds. He’s also broken similar records in other events, some of which were previously held by Olympic legend Michael Phelps.

“Once in a while, I look at the USA Swimming website at the achievements I’ve done and records,” Andrew said. “I’ve pretty much set history, and there’s nobody else who’s done the records I’ve set.”
