UPDATE: Michael Phelps raced a shark…and lost. Still, we say he’s a pretty good sport for giving it a shot!
In honor of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, Olympian Michael Phelps raced a great white shark. As good as Phelps is, he’s no match for mother nature.

Sorry, Phelps. The shark would probably still win–though we’d love to watch you compete again.
