Andrew first started training with Temple Swimming Club for the Disabled in Glasgow when he was seven years old. He has now been competing for over three years.

Other career highlights include winning two medals upon making his international debut aged just 14 years old. At the 2011 IPC European Championships in Berlin, Germany, Andrew won silver in the 50m Butterfly (S5) and bronze in the 200m Individual Medley (SM5).

At London 2012, Andrew qualified for the final in all three of his events. In the 50m Butterfly (S5) he became the first Briton to record a time under 40 seconds when he touched with 39.71 in the heats. He also recorded a British Record in the 50m Backstroke (S5).

“In four years I’ll hopefully be bigger and stronger and I’m sure I’ll be able to catch the others then.”Andrew Mullen

Andrew is currently a full-time student.
