Shark Week 2017 kicks off with Michael Phelps racing a shark!

Shark Week is one of our favorite times of the year! We have the ultimate respect for these incredible creatures and we believe they often get a bad rap, so we take every chance we get to celebrate this fiercely awesome animal. Shark Week 2017 is kicking off in a particularly cool way this year: swimmer extraordinaire Michael Phelps versus a great white shark! The newly retired Olympian is literally racing a shark in the open ocean. Phelps claims that swimming with (against?) sharks has been a lifelong bucket list item for him and although he admitted that he wasn't actually in the water at the same time as the shark for the race itself, he did spend some time diving down to look at the sharks up close (with a team of 12-15 protectors at all time...because, you know, they're sharks). 

Sharks can swim up to 25 miles per hour, amazingly. In order to compete, Phelps was equipped with a monofin, an attachment that enabled him to move through the water similarly to the shark. He said the biggest challenge of the race was actually the freezing cold open waters of the ocean, which were a frigid 53 degrees at race time. The outcome of the race will be revealed tonight on the show Phelps vs. Shark: The Battle for Ocean Supremacy. My personal guess was that the mighty shark was victorious...but Phelps probably gave him a run for his money!
