The greatest athlete to ever step foot in a pool, Michael Phelps, has decided he is bored of just racing other humans, so naturally he is now going to be competing against one of the fastest and ferocious swimmers in nature: a Great White Shark.

Theres not a whole lot of details about the Phelps-Shark race yet, but it has been reported that the race is slotted for Shark Week’s finale on July 30th. Great White Sharks can swim up to 25 mph, with some even being clocked at 35 mph, so it is safe to say that Phelps is going to have a hard time getting a W, but I’ve never seen a Great White Shark use circle therapy like Phelps did in his last Olympic Games campaign where he won 5 gold medals, so anything is possible.
