Erm excuse us, but we need to take a moment to indulge our inner shark (and Michael Phelps) obsession.
Michael Phelps is going to race a real life shark as part of Discovery Channel’s infamous Shark Week programming on July 23rd. Because when you’ve got 39 world records and 23 Olympic golds, what else is there left to do?
“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!"
“I was able to do something that I had always wanted to do. Be in a cage and dive with great White sharks!! #bucketlist,” he captioned the snap of the shark.
