Michael Phelps Responds to 'Phelps vs Shark' Criticism, Defends the Special

Michael Phelps did a Facebook Live Q&A last night and had many people asking about his controversial special, Phelps vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White.

Fans were disappointed with the special, because the Olympic great did not end up actually racing a shark, but a CGI shark was created using scientific date taken from actual sharks. Michael lost to the CGI Great White by 2 seconds.

“Everybody wants to pick on something or say something or complain about something, so I had fun racing a shark. And seeing those animals up close and personal. If somebody actually wants to get in the water and race side-by-side with a great white, go ahead. You’re not going to get the shark to swim in a straight line. And, uh, yeah, it would be interesting to see. We’ll leave it at that,” Michael said in defense of the show.

“You can believe whatever you want. Everything was either present on air during multiple interviews that I did throughout Shark Week or the beginning of the show. Sorry you feel that way. For me, it was something I always wanted to do. I was honored to be able to do it. So, I’m sorry that you feel that way. I feel very different,” he added about people saying the advertising was misleading.

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.

The following day, Michael stopped by Good Morning America to dish all about the “intense” race for the Shark Week special.

“When we were in the cage, as soon as I first got in, I felt both sides of the cage kind of moving back and forth, and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, we’re really getting bit, the cage is shaking,’” Michael said. “They didn’t look that big underwater. I guess now seeing the video, they were pretty massive sharks. I had one, like I was saying, literally come right up to my nose, and it was crazy.”
