Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will race a great white shark, and lose to it, as a stunt to kick off this year’s Discovery Channel Shark Week festivities, the network announced this week. Discovery Channel released scant details about the event, “Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs Great White,” but Phelps stands to lose big, despite his 23 Olympic gold medals.
For those with minimal shark knowledge, the AVERAGE shark, can swim 50 feet per second…the average shark LOL! Either way it’ll be entertaining and here’s to hoping Great Whitey has been properly fed before they drop into the tank 😉 And you guys all thought that Mayweather VS McGregor was the mismatch of the year?
