Michael Phelps Is Going To Race An Actual Shark

Shark Week begins the last week in July - mark your calendars!  Here's the part though that has me most intrigued.  

The Discovery Channel announced the details of the involvement of Michael Phelps.  The 23-time gold medalist will attempt to race a great white shark. The segment is dubbed “Great Gold versus Great White.”

Why?!  Because Michael Phelps!  That's why.  He's just awesome in the water: 


He's been close to sharks before: 


When he's not being genuinely bad-ass... he's just 'Dad' to the cutest:  Baby Boomer!  We heart you Michael Phelps!
