Greenville, S.C. (WSPA) — The 23-time Olympic Gold medal winner Michael Phelps is facing a new challenge this year.
Phelps is known to be a beast in the swimming pool, but this challenge has a new twist just in time for Shark Week.
The Discovery Channel says they are setting up a race between Phelps and a Great White shark.
The race is scheduled for the last week of July.
Phelps recently posted a picture of a Great White swimming by a diving cage, but there is still no word if a cage is going be used in the upcoming race.
