Henrik Steen Andersen (born April 6, 1977 in Taastrup) is a retired Danish swimmer, who specialized in sprint and middle-distance freestyle events.[1] He represented Denmark at the 2000 Summer Olympics, and also trained for the swim team at Taastrup Sport Club (Danish: Taastrup Idræts Klub).[2]

Andersen competed for Denmark in two swimming events at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.[3][4] On the first day of the Games, he teamed up with Dennis Otzen Jensen, Jeppe Nielsen, and Jacob Carstensen in the 4×100 m freestyle relay. Swimming the second leg in heat three, Andersen recorded a split of 51.45, but the Danes managed to pull off a seventh-place effort and eighteenth overall in a final time of 3:24.78.[5][6] Three days later, Andersen, along with Jensen, Nielsen, and Carstensen, placed eleventh 4×200 m freestyle relay with a time of 7:24.63. During the prelims race in heat two, he came up with a spectacular swim on the second exchange and recorded a split of 1:51.51.[7][8]
