The star has more Olympic medals than anyone in the history of the games, but soon he will put his speed and agility up against one of his most feared competitors yet. Today the word on the e-streets is that Michael Phelps To Race A Great White Shark For “Shark Week.” According to a recent press release from Discovery Channel, word is the Olympian will race a great white shark as part of “Shark Week” on July 23. Discover Channel stated: “They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks.
He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world’s most decorated athlete takes on the ocean’s most efficient predator: Phelps V Shark – the race is on.” According to Bleacher Report, if Mr. Phelps is to have any chance “the distance and the shark’s state of mind will certainly play a role in the race.” Interesting to say the least, and certainly something we will be checking out.
