Andrew, who swam a personal best of 1:56.25 during prelims, took out the semifinals race hard, splitting under the world record pace for the first 150 meters. Although he fell off the pace on the freestyle leg, Andrew still finished in a time of 1:55.26, slicing another second off of his personal best.
With his performance, Andrew moves up from #5 to #3 all-time amongst Americans, putting himself only behind world record holder Ryan Lochte and legend Michael Phelps. It also makes him the fastest performer in the world for the 2020-2021 season.

The biggest difference between Andrew’s race tonight and his prelims race came on the backstroke and breaststroke legs, where he split almost a half second faster on each 50. However, he was slightly slower on the freestyle leg tonight.
