Andrés José González (born March 25, 1989 in San Francisco, Córdoba) is an Argentine swimmer, who specialized in butterfly events.[1] He won a bronze medal in the 200 m butterfly at the 2010 South American Games in Medellin, Colombia.[2][3]

Gonzalez qualified for men's 200 m butterfly at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, by claiming the title and clearing a FINA B-standard entry time of 2:00.82 from the Latin Cup in Serravalle, San Marino.[4][5] He challenged seven other swimmers on the second heat, including Olympic veterans Vladan Marković of Serbia, James Walsh of the Philippines, and Donny Utomo of Indonesia. He raced to third place by 0.12 of a second behind Spain's Javier Núñez in 2:00.36. Gonzalez failed to advance into the semifinals, as he placed thirty-third overall in the preliminary heats.[6]
