TOKYO, JAPAN – Michael Andrew was part of the United States Men’s 4×100 Medley Relay squad that set a new world record and captured the gold during the Summer Olympic Games Saturday night.

The former Aberdeen resident swam the breaststroke portion for the squad that clocked a time of 3:26.78, breaking a 12-year-old world record. Other team members included Ryan Murphy, Caeleb Dressel and Zach Apple.

Earlier in the evening, Andrew finished fourth in the 50 Freestyle, just out of medal placing. It marked the third individual event where Andrew just missed getting medal. He was fourth in the 100 Breaststroke and fifth in the 200 IM.
