KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas swimmer’s hopes of securing Olympic gold in Tokyo were dashed Sunday.

Michael Andrew, who has ties to Lawrence, finished 4th in the 100-meter breaststroke finals with a time of 58.84.

Andrew qualified for the finals Saturday with a third-place finish in the semifinals, and won his first heat of the 100-meter breaststroke that morning with a time of 58.62.

He also is competing in the 200-meter individual medley and the 50-meter freestyle.

Andrew first competed in the Olympic Trials in 2016.
