No one will be surprised to find out that Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, was a talented swimmer as a kid. Back in 1995, 10-year-old Phelps recorded the year’s fastest 100-meter butterfly time for his age class in the U.S. What may be more surprising is that in the same year, 10-year-old Kris Humphries clocked the fastest times in six different events: 50-meter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle, 50-meter butterfly, 50-meter backstroke, 50-meter breaststroke and 200-meter individual medley (the last of which is an event that Phelps has won at the past four Olympics).
In Duncan’s case, the loss of his hometown pool to Hurricane Hugo and the death of his mother, Ione, played a part in the switch. For Humphries, it was more a matter of following the sport for which he held a passion. As he told People magazine in 2003, “I was so good at a young age that I got a little burnt out,” Humphries said. “I also grew up in the Michael Jordan era … for me, I watched [basketball] and saw it as a challenge. It’s hard to stay focused on something when you have a ton of success at a young age, so I picked up basketball a little later and rolled with that.”
