Move over, Michael Phelps — you’ve got competition!
In 1995, Phelps set the record for the fastest 100-meter butterfly swim for his age class (at ten years old) in the entire United States, so it shouldn’t be a surprise as to how successful he is now.
But there was one ten-year-old better than Phelps that year, and it was Kris Humphries!!
That’s right, Miz K’s ex-husband and the current NBA star was racking up swimming records left and right in the pool as a kid!
He outperformed Phelps AND other future Olympians like Ryan Lochte by setting six different swimming records in his age class that year: the 50-meter freestyle, the 100-meter freestyle, the 50-meter butterfly, the 50-meter backstroke, the 50-meter breaststroke, AND the 200-meter individual medley.
To this day, in fact, Humphries still holds a whopping twelve age bracket records in his home state of Minnesota!!
He’s a successful basketball player, no doubt, but maybe Kris stuck with the wrong sport?!
After all, at ten he had NO trouble Keeping Up with the best swimmers alive!!
