A 10-year-old swimmer has broken one of Michael Phelps’ longest standing records in the pool.

Clark Kent Apuada (yes, that is his real name) is also known as Superman to friends and family. Last weekend, he blew past Phelps’ 100 meter butterfly record.

“When I looked at the board getting out of the water like WOW! I beat Michael Phelps’ record. I was really overjoyed that I beat Michael Phelps record,” Clark said.

Clark began competitive swimming three years ago. Phelps congratulated Clark shortly after the meet.

Phelps’ record has been standing since Phelps’ was also 10-years-old, 23 years ago. Clark beat that record by a full second.

His dream is to compete in the Olympics.
