Yeah, Kris Humphries Used To Beat Michael Phelps At Swimming
Turns out Kris Humphries coulda been a contender.
Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps are known as the two most dominant forces in men's swimming history.
But if you can believe it, there once was a human being who could beat not only Ryan but Michael as well. And that person was...
That's right, the basketball player/ex-husband of Kim Kardashian West was a swimmer in his ~youth~ and at one point was beating Michael and Ryan in like a trillion events.
Yep, Kris Humphries was smoking Michael and Ryan back when they were like, 10 years old.
The 50-meter free and 100-meter freestyle events? He beat them.
The 50-meter butterfly? Bye, Michael.
The 50-meter backstroke? Both of them, gone.
Kris told People that he stopped swimming because he got "burnt out":
I was so good at a young age that I got a little burnt out, 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.
