Apuada is faster than Michael Phelps was at the same age.

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

It's only fitting, though, that "Superman" is the one to pass him up.

This kid might be coming for all of Michael Phelps' records after this.

Phelps, who retired from swimming after the Rio Olympics, is the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 28 medals - 23 of them gold. That is more than a second faster than what Phelps managed at the same competition, the Far West International Championship in California, over two decades ago in 1995. On July 29, Apuada clocked in a new record at 1:09.38 and proceeded to win six other events that he competed in.

The rising fifth grader has been swimming competitively for four years and targeted the event because of the chance to break Phelps' record, his mother Cynthia told the Huffington Post.

The Asian Games, co-hosted by the cities of Jakarta and Palembang, are expected to see a further cementing of that partnership. National anthems of the United States and South Korea were played, and the caskets were given a 21-gun salute by USA riflemen.

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

When not in the water, Apuada, according to one of his coaches, Dia Rianda, who is also the CEO of Salinas Aquatic Center, keeps himself busy with various activities like music and martial arts, as well as scientific and artistic pursuits.

Despite his enthusiasm, Clark said the load doesn't get too heavy.

"I love swimming because I have a lot of people supporting me and my coaches are always there for me and my parents are always there", Clark said in a story posted on CNN.

"Dream big", he said, "and always focus on your dreams and have fun".
