In the 2004 Olympics, Vanderkaay, along with Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Klete Keller beat the favored Australian team, led by Ian Thorpe, in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay. Six years later, Thrope is now retired, and Vanderkaay isn't assured a spot on the relay team. He is however, scheduled to race in the men's 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle.
