The first international honour for Andrew was selection for the Scottish team that competed in the European Schools Games in Lisbon in 1994.

When first Andrew became involved in competitive swimming as a pupil at Glenrothes High School he had no shortage of energy, a considerable degree of skill and a determination to win every race he would enter.

Perpetual motion are words that often have been used to describe Andrew. He represented Great Britain at the Paralympic Games in Atlanta (1996), Sydney (2000), Athens (2004) and Beijing (2008). He was World record holder in the S7 100 metres backstroke for a decade and won 2 gold and 1 silver Paralympic medals. Andrew was a member of the Incas club until he transferred to the National Academy in Stirling.

Andrew served Fife, Scotland and Great Britain well and remains one of the country’s most successful high-performance international Para swimmers.

Andrew was inducted into the Scottish Swimming Hall of Fame.
