A 10-year-old – with a rather familiar name – has smashed a swimming record previously held by an Olympian.
According to CNN, Clark Kent Apuada, dubbed ‘Superman’ by his friends (surely, Superboy?) competed at the Far West International Championship in California this weekend, where he won the 100-meter butterfly with a time of 1:09:38. His finishing time was over a second better than that of Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps, who previously set the record in 1995.
Clark’s coach, Dia Riana, said: “This kid is unlike any other young man that I’ve ever coached.
“He’s always stood out, he’s just, he’s kind of a savant of sorts.”
According to his father, Clark is also a dab hand at the piano, coding and martial arts. I wonder if he’s able to fly yet?
