Michael Phelps Loses Race Against Great White Shark — but Wins Against Reef Shark

5 hours ago


When fans heard that 28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps would be racing against against a shark on live TV they were excited, but it turns out the result wasn’t quite what they had in mind.

On Sunday’s Phelps vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White, the Olympic swimmer tested his racing ability against a number of sharks — but it was all simulated. Instead, Phelps raced against virtual versions of the sharks side-by-side based on their swim rate in a separate race.

The problem? Many fans apparently thought that the retired Olympian would be getting into a swim tank with real sharks. »
