Andrés José González (born March 25, 1989) is an Argentine swimmer, who specialized in butterfly events.[1] He represented his nation Argentina at the 2008 Summer Olympics, and eventually captured a bronze medal in the 200 m butterfly at the 2010 South American Games in Medellin, Colombia.[2][3]

Gonzalez competed for Argentina in the men's 200 m butterfly at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Leading up to the Games, he won the race with a sterling 2:00.82 to dip beneath the FINA B-standard (2:01.80) at the Latin Cup in Serravalle, San Marino.[4][5] Trailing from behind throughout the race in heat two, Gonzalez came up with a spectacular swim at the final turn to hit the wall with a third-place time and a new Argentine record in 2:00.36. Gonzalez failed to advance into the semifinals, as he placed thirty-third overall in the prelims.[6][7]
