Boy 10 yro Beats Native Michael Phelps’ Record
« on: August 02, 2018, 08:21:27 AM »
 It’s not very often that Michael Phelps gets knocked off the record board. But a 10-year old swimming phenom with a superhero name has done just that.

His name is Clark Kent Apuada. And of course, they call him “Superman.”

Over the weekend, Clark competed at the Far West International Championship in California, where he won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:09:38.

That’s more than second better than the 100-meter butterfly record that Phelps set at the championship in 1995.

It had gone unbroken, while Phelps went on to win 28 Olympic medals.

Even more impressive, Clark has only been swimming competitively for four years.

“This kid is unlike any other young man that I’ve ever coached,” Clark’s coach Dia Riana told CNN. “He’s always stood out, he’s just, he’s kind of a savant of sorts.”

Clark’s supernatural abilities aren’t confined to the pool.

“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.

Clark says the load doesn’t get too heavy.

That kid must have an amazing set of lungs because he doesn't have the body fat necessary to assist him in lifting him above the waterline.
I was a great swimmer, but only underwater, I sunk like a rock. :lol:
