Olympic legend Michael Phelps is the best we’ve at any point found in the water.
All things considered, for a human. As indicated by a public statement from Discovery Channel, Phelps will race an extraordinary white shark as a feature of Shark Week on July 23:
“They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks. He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world’s most decorated athlete takes on the ocean’s most efficient predator: Phelps V Shark – the race is on!”
Phelps will have his hands full.
As per Jennifer Kennedy of ThoughtCo.com, sharks voyage at around 5 mph, however, awesome whites can achieve north of 25 mph on the off chance that they’re in assault mode.
“Their swimming speed is 10 times faster than the typical human swimmer,” Kennedy composed.
Phelps is no regular human; in 2010, close to the stature of his forces, Phelps was timed at 6 mph by ESPN.com. The separation and the shark’s perspective will certainly play a role in the race.
The 31-year-old ran cage diving with some incredible whites a weekend ago, perhaps scouting out his competition:
