No, not Superman only his name is the same. 10 year old Clark Kent Apuada who is Filipino - American just broke Michael Phelps 23 years old record by more than one second in the Far Western Long Course Championship in California. Phelps set his record of 1:10.48 back in '95 in the same event, the 100-meter butterfly for boys 10 or younger and 23 years later the young Superman swam 1:09:38.

After the event Clark said breaking this record was his dream since he started to swim competitively at age 7.

If anyone had to break this record it had to be Superman, and I think he is someone to keep an eye on in the future, maybe even in the 2024 Olympics...

Congrats to this young man, full article below...

Man pull the wind right outta my sails dude. You just ruined all the super kid jokes with your first sentence.
I was gonna say and the long jump and the relay race and pole vaulting.
Super humans. Shouldn't we just get to the ultimate limit for human endurance? Can we keep breaking records forever?
Michael.Phelps is retired from the Olympics now isn't he?
Just saw Ryan Lochte was in trouble again but I didn't pay attention to the details.

That's a heck of a bragging point to beat one of Phelps records. Kid must swim like a torpedo.

But I must warn, I've seen monster kids in little league and by the time they are in high school they are just middle of the pack.

Guess we will have to watch this one.

I'm not big on Superman and correct me if I am wrong but in Smallwille the tv show, wasn't superman started to have his powers at around age 10?

I am not saying Clark is an alien but...

Michael Phelps' middle name is Fred. Fred Phelps leads the Westbork Baptist Church. Superman beats the villain again.
