Itâ€™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, heâ€™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. Heâ€™s also broken similar records in other events, some of which were previously held by Olympic legend Michael Phelps.
â€œOnce in a while, I look at the USA Swimming website at the achievements Iâ€™ve done and records,â€ Andrew said. â€œIâ€™ve pretty much set history, and thereâ€™s nobody else whoâ€™s done the records Iâ€™ve set.â€
