Michael Phelps wants to race a shark, because of course

I think we can all agree at this point that Michael Phelps is basically super human, but is he superhuman enough to beat a shark?

As part of Shark Week, the former-ish Olympian has apparently raced a shark for a show to be aired on July 23rd, according to USA Today.

Phelps posted on Instagram and gave a press conference this week, so we know the shark did not eat or harm him, so that’s good.

So let’s here it: Michael Phelps v. Shark, who ya got?

    Just to be clear….does the shark know it’s in a race, or is it just trying to catch and eat Mike P. ?

    I know this is a blog and very informal, but I find your lack of proofreading disturbing.

      I agree with you here. I’m still waiting for the day when Nick Roush can write an article that isn’t riddled with spelling/grammatical errors.

    Hope there’s a barrier between lanes.

    I’ll take the shark but I’m guessing they get creative with the race setup… cause shark -25 mph…. fastest human 5 mph…. Michael should be shark food in short order
