Phelps to race a shark

June 20, 2017

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will race a great white shark — and likely lose to it — as a stunt to open this year’s Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.

Discovery Channel released only a few details about the spectacle, “Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs Great White,” but Phelps stands to lose big, despite his 23 Olympic gold medals.

Even the fastest human swimmers can only hit 6 miles per hour. Great white sharks, on the other hand, can swim 25 to 35 miles per hour.

They also have 300 razor-sharp teeth. It is unclear if Phelps and the shark will compete in the same tank, but here’s hoping the great white will be well-fed!

I think that this is just an excuse for Phelps to show off his skills. I also think that the shark won't be trying to race, as it is a shark that probably doesn't speak English! Imagine how worried his family would be!
