That’s right. As part of Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week,” Phelps is going to take his skills to the next level while he attempts to beat an actual shark. This is insanity!
You are definitely going to want to set you DVR to record on Sunday, July 23, 2017 so that you can watch this epic showdown between one of nature’s greatest predators and a 23-time Olympic gold medalist.
While promoting the special, Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White, Discovery Channel released the following statement: “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!”
