    Michael Andrew

    Age:
    12
    State:
    Kansas
    Sports:
    Swimming
    BIO
    Big things are happening for Michael, and it’s not just because the 12-year-old already stands 6 feet tall and wears a size 14 shoe. Michael, who excels in all four strokes, is the top-ranked swimmer in his age group in nine short-course events and still holds seven national records in the 10-and-under age group. He has won so many medals and awards that they cover his walls at home. “They are all special to me,” he says. Michael hopes to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and add the ultimate medal to his collection.
