And the winner is…

USA Olympian Michael Phelps has whooped the world’s butt in swimming that now he is taking on one of the most feared animals in the seas.

Phelps kicked off #SharkWeek on the Discovery channel for the special primetime special, “Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White.” Many thought it was a no brainer that the swimmer would lose since his top speed is 6 MPH compared to 25 MPH for the shark. To even the playing field, Phelps was given a shark skin wet suit and monofin to emulate a shark’s tail.

Still , ou not out racing a shark and the shark beat Phelps in the simulated race.
