A 10 year-old swimmer has broken one of Michael Phelps' longest standing records in the pool.

Clark Kent Apuada started swimming competitively 3 years ago.

He said he always wanted to break the record in the 100 meter butterfly.

Last weekend the dream came true, smashing the record time by a full second.

"When I looked at the board getting out of the water like wow, I beat Michael Phelps record" said Apuada. " I was really overjoyed that I beat Michael Phelps record."

Michael Phelps' record has stood since 1995 when Phelps was also 10.

Clark Kent's ultimate goal is swimming in the Olympics.
