Young swimmer named Clark Kent breaks speed record held by Michael Phelps


A 10-year-old boy named Clark Kent proves he’s Superman in the pool, beating a record set by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps in the 100 meter butterfly.

Clark took first place at the Far West International Swim Championship near San Francisco with a time of 1 minute and 9 seconds, breaking Phelps’ record – set 23 years ago, when he was the same age – by one second.

Phelps would go on to win 28 gold medals.

Could Clark Kent be next? He started swimming at the age of 3.
