Clark Kent Apuada (born 2008) is an American junior competition swimmer who has gained notoriety after beating an old swim record of Olympic swim champion Michael Phelps. Phelps, the all-time-winningest Olympian, held the record since 1995. Sometimes called 'Superman' for sharing a name with the fictitious superhero, Arpuada is said to have the powers of Aquaman. He swims for the Monterey County Aquatic Team, which competed at the Far West International Championship in California. Apuada won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:09:38, a full second faster than gold Olympic medalist Michel Phelps achieved in 2005.
Clark has only been swimming competitively for four years. He has been described by his coach Dia Riana as "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." The stand-out was recognized by Herofuel in February 2017 as a featured sports hero, spokesperson and superstar athlete after the youngster received the High Point Award, then achieved standing as a Far Westerns finalist.
The Salinas Aquatic Center MCAT announced that Apuada has broken Michael Phelps Far Western Age Group Record set in 1995 (1:10.48)at the 2018 Long Course Meters Far Western International Age Group Championships 7/29/18.
Clark is Filipino-American, 10 years old and still in elementary school. The swim phenom has his sights set on the 2024 Olympics in Paris, France.
