Review: Michael Andrew takes fans to World Cup in Budapest with new vlog (Includes first-hand account)

Earlier this month, as Digital Journal reported, Andrew was victorious in the Swimming World Cup in Budapest, where he won first place in the men’s 200 meter individual medley (IM) with a time of 1:59.02.

On the first day in Budapest, Andrew acknowledged that it is going to be a “fun morning.” While he was recovering with Kaatsu (blood flow restriction), Andrew participated in a question and answer session with his fans that had submitted questions to his via social media.

He opened up about the International Swimming League (ISL), where he is serving as the Vice-Captain of the New York Breakers. “It is an opportunity for athletes to race a little more, and then, have the opportunity to make more money, racing,” he said, prior to revealing that their first competition is in Lewisville, Texas, on October 19 and 20 at the LISD Westside Aquatic Center. “That will be our first meet owning and running a team,” he said.

Andrew noted that it has been a decade since he swam on a team, so the New York Breakers is his “new swim family.”

In his previous vlog, Andrew shared that even on his days off he is constantly surrounded by water.
