Everyone make sure your man is in the cage and your cage is in the water — because Shark Week is almost upon us!
The Olympic gold medal swimmer is testing his aquatic speed against the ultimate swimming (and killing) machine in the form of a great white shark in the upcoming special entitled Phelps Vs. Shark: Great Gold Vs. Great White.
We have no idea how the Sunday, July 23 special will pull off the race, though we can probably guarantee Phelps won’t be racing for his life. Probably. According to the promo:
“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” ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ the race is on!”
We are so down to see this! Will YOU be tuning in??
