Michael Phelps Is Over Humans, Now Going To Race Great White Shark

The comedy ad ends with the line, "It's still a bad week to be a seal".

Retired swimmer Michael Phelps will return to the water next month as he prepares to race against a shark in a battle sure to attract the eyes of the world.

In particular, according to the program presented on Discovery's official Facebook page, Phelps VS Shark will be presented on June 23rd. And while it's Olympian Michael Phelps who gets educated at Bimini Shark Lab, Chris Noth is the chosen narrator for Sharks and the City: New York. (I wonder why?) Details of the race's structure are unclear. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win.

WASHINGTON, USA - Michael Phelps's shark-like instincts powered the American to a record 23 Olympic swimming gold medals, but how would he fare against an actual shark? Discovery described it as "an event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before". Great Whites clock in with an impressive speed of 25 miles per hour in open water. The television event is already one of the most hyped competitions this year, and we can't wait to see the world's greatest swimmer go head-to-head with the ocean's most lethal predator.

Shark Week 2017 is set to scare up viewers this summer, and the Discovery Channel has Michael Phelps on board.

The chances of Phelps winning will depend on how motivated the shark gets. Be in a cage and dive with great White sharks!
