A 10 Year Old Just Beat A Record Michael Phelps Held For 23 Years
A 10 year old who swims for the Monterey County Aquatic Team has just beaten Michael Phelps' record in the 100-meter butterfly at the Far West International Championship in California.
Phelps set the record championship in 1995, and on July 19th the 10-year-old was able to beat that record by more than a second, coming in at 1:09:38. According to CNN, the boy has only been swimming competitively for four years.
Even better? His name is actually Clark Kent Apuada. And his "Superman" talents are not just confined to the pool.
"This kid is unlike any other young man that I've ever coached," Clark's coach Dia Riana said to CNN. "He's always stood out, he's just, he's kind of a savant of sorts."
Great! We don't feel any pressure at all.
"He does piano lessons, he does martial arts, and at school if there's a computer class, coding, or STEM programs he's always joining," his father, Chris Apuada, said to CNN.
