Did Michael Phelps Or Great White Win Shark Week Race?

Did Michael Phelps Or Great White Win Shark Week Race?

After weeks of anticipation, Michael Phelps faced off with a Great White Shark in Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White!

In the special that aired during Shark Week on the Discovery Channel on Sunday (July 23), the 32-year-old Olympic gold-medalist tested his racing ability against a number of different shark breeds.

However, all of the sharks were virtual version and Michael did not actually swim side-by-side with any sharks, but raced CGI version of sharks based on their swim rates in separate races.

In the first 50-meter race against the reef shark, Michael won with a time 18.7 seconds. When his time was compared to the hammerhead shark, Michael was defeated as the shark finished the race in 15.1 seconds.

For the main event against the Great White Shark, Michael was defeated once again by only two seconds.
