Andrés Arroyo (born June 7, 1995) is a Puerto Rican middle-distance track athlete who specializes in various events. He competed for Puerto Rico at the Central American and Caribbean Junior Championships in Athletics in 2012 and 2014. He also appeared at the 2013 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, where he ran the junior men's race.
Arroyo attended Colonial High School in Orlando, Florida. Before high school, he had aspired to become a baseball player, and in an attempt to improve his speed for baseball, he was rejected by his middle-school's track team. He and his family moved to the United States in 2004. A spell of two races in March–April 2013 garnered national attention for Arroyo, who ran 4:04.45 in a 1600-meter race and a 1:47.79 800 meter run at the 2013 Florida Relays. He was only one of six individuals in US high school history to run under 1:48 in the 800 meters.
Arroyo was recruited by University of Florida. He made his debut for the Gators track team on January 11, 2014, running 4:14.61 mile at that year's UAB Invitational in Birmingham, Alabama.
Arroyo qualified for 2016 Summer Olympics running 1:45.78 in 800 metres at 2016 Florida Relays.
