The 23-time Olympic gold medallist isn’t done with us yet. After dominating the swimming pool and becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps retired. And it made sense, after a decade and a half of devastating everyone else, it was about time for him to settle down. Or so we thought. This shark week, humanity’s best swimmer is going to face off against a great white shark.
Maybe he decided to stop messing around with people and go after a real challenge.
Social media is buzzing about it:

I can’t wait to watch Michael Phelps race a great white shark. Who do you think will win?

The Discovery Channel calls this match-up “an event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before”, and it will be sure to amaze.
You can catch the race on the Discovery Channel, 7/23 at 8 pm ET.
