In case you missed it, Discovery Channel began it’s very popular ‘Shark Week’ with a man versus nature battle. American Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps took on a Great White Shark in a 100 metre race. (Spoiler Alert: Phelps took the silver)
Phelps, who is the most decorated Olympian of all time, finished with a time of 38.1 seconds. The shark finished 2 seconds faster at 36.1 seconds.
Due to several circumstances, (including the dangers of a Great White Shark sharing close waters with a human) the shark was a computer-generated simulation and the race was based on a time trial.
Of course, Twitter had a lot to say on this one…
