Michael Phelps Got Crushed in His Simulated Races Against Sharks

Michael Phelps

It was billed as one of the most epic sporting events of our times: Michael Phelps, human fish and 28-time Olympic medalist, against a Great White Shark. Bummer. The race took place Sunday night to commence the first day of Discovery Channel's always-anticipated Shark Week. The race was 100 meters, which is Phelps's jam-he's got 3 gold medals at that distance-and went down in open water, not in a pool.

9 p.m. - "The Lost Cage" A team of explorers float in a one-of-a-kind shark cage, 500 miles into the Gulf of Mexico.

And it basically turned out exactly how you imagined it would - well, not exactly, because he didn't get eaten. What many people are unaware of is that there are a number of unique shark species swimming in our waters.

Sharks and the City: New York (July 25, 10 ET/PT): Seals have returned to New York Harbor, which means their greatest predator, the great white shark, probably isn't far behind. I guess now seeing the video, they were pretty massive sharks.

All around the world, sharks are being killed for their fins. In the 50-meter race he beat the reef shark with a time of 18.7 but was blasted out of the water by the hammerhead with a time of 15.1. "It's something that a shark can survive in, and a human really can't survive in water like that".

Could the fastest swimmer alive outpace a great white?

But chalk it up to the fact that a gold medal wasn't on the line, and the pressure was completely off, but Phelps looked extremely loose.

The show wasn't a total loss for those who were upset to learn that Phelps wasn't actually racing sharks. Furthermore, Phelps will be wearing a monofin that will enable him to increase his speed to somewhere around 12 miles per hour by generating more torque with his feet.

Marking its 29th anniversary, Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" kicks off July 23 for eight days of programming.
