Boy, 10, named Clark Kent beats Michael Phelps' swimming record

10-Year-Old Clark Kent Shatters Phelps’ 100M Butterfly Record

USA's Michael Phelps competes in the Men's swimming 4 x 100m Medley Relay Final at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The aptly-nicknamed "Superman", who swims for the Monterey County Aquatic Team, clocked in at 1:09:38 in the 100-meter freestyle, more than a second faster than the 1:10.48 set by the American sporting legend in 1995.

"Being a Michael Phelps record breaker is wonderful, because Michael Phelps is one of the largest swimming icons in the world", said Apuada.

Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, set the record of 1:10.48 back in 1995.

"It's the coolest thing in the world because that's all he talked about", said Travis Rianda, Apuada's swim coach.

Speaking at the event, Apauda said his ultimate goal is to one day compete at the Olympics.

"He's on track for all three of those".

The controversial National Register for Citizens resulted in frenzied protests in Parliament from the Opposition. Over 40 lakh people were left out from the list. "Think of the country", she said.

In 1996, Phelps set the overall USA 10-and-under record for the 100 butterfly at 1:08.54, a mark that since has been bested by Carson Foster in 2012 (1:07.24) and then Andrew Rogers, who broke the record twice at a 2015 meet in Texas.

"We're always just telling people his name is Clark", Cynthia said.

"I deal with it really well, I just have to balance", he told CNN.

Carrying a superhero's name could be a burden for some, but one 10-year-old swimmer in the U.S. is doing his best to live up to his.

He added: "Dream big, and always focus on your dreams and have fun".

He said swimming is his favorite because of all the support from family and coaches.

The elementary school student, who has only been swimming competitively for four years, also won every event.
