"Superman" Swimmer Breaks Michael Phelps Record—At 10 Years Old!
When he was young, Michael Phelps swam at the Far Western International Championship Sunday, setting a record in the 100-meter butterfly race. The future Olympian finished in 1:10:48.
A 10-year-old named Clark Kent (yes, really!) just swam the race in 1:09:38.
Phelps' record had stood for many years, but it couldn't stand up against the speed of young Clark, who also won first place in every race he entered at the Championship. He took home the High Point Award for the 10-and-under group—and made headlines for his impressive showing!
Clark hopes to eventually follow his predecessor into the Olympics. And he has some solid advice for other young people who have set lofty goals for themselves.
"Always have fun and never give up on your dreams," Clark said, "no matter what anybody says."
