Shark Week : Michael Phelps versus Great White Shark

Shutterstock

Great White, in which Discovery Channel pits decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps against decorated ocean creature, a great white shark, in a race for the GOAT title. For his safety, Phelps actually swam alone and the shark was digitally added in the side-by-side battle later on. After all, the shark's average speed of 25 miles per hour was more than four times Phelps's own top speed in the pool.

As obvious as that may have been, some people are still a little let down by the fact the gold medalist's big race against a great white on Shark Week was nearly completely faked.

Indeed, he did not swim alongside the shark, for the biggest disappointment of many spectators of the program broadcast Sunday night.

Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool 'is totally dependent on Southampton u-turn'
Virgil van Dijk could take Southampton to the "arbitration board" to complain of unfair treatment if still in the Netherlands. Pellegrino reportedly told the media : "The boy said that he is not available to play because he wants to leave".

By the way, the computer-simulated shark won by two seconds.

- Shark Week (@SharkWeek) July 24, 2017Rematch? Phelps acknowledged the chilly swim after the special aired, tweeting: "Rematch?" Even though Phelps lost by a hair in this would-be race, to Phelps' credit, he could take down a reef shark in a 50-meter race by 0.2 seconds. The below advertisement led people to believe that the Olympian would, like, actually race a shark. He told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that he originally wanted to do it without the protective cage. "I think that's the one thing we all - we want everyone to know - I was safe, which was No. 1".

However what Phelps lacks in speed, he makes up for in endurance, which the Great White lacks.
