LOS ANGELES - Michael Andrew won the men's 100m breaststroke at the Pro Swim Series in Indianapolis in 58.67sec, and said he's got lots of room for improvement before the US Olympic trials and Tokyo Games roll around.

"I think if I had swum this evening as clean as I did this morning, I could have gone 58.3," Andrew said after his finals victory that came on the heels of his 58.82 performance in the heats.

"There were a ton of mistakes, I was short on my turn and my foot broke on the surface on the breakout to come home. So there were a few things that I would have liked to have done differently but I felt really strong.

"I'm a little bummed I didn’t get an American record," he said of coming up shy of Kevin Cordes' national mark of 58.64. "That's what I was going for, but I'm happy with it."

The time put him fourth-fastest in the world this year, with Briton Adam Peaty's 57.39 topping the list in 2021.
