Having already conquered the Olympics and the swimming pool,looks like retired competitive swimmer Michael Phelps is moving beyond mere humans and intothe open water.
The all-time Olympic gold medal champion will be participating in Discovery Channel's ever-popular Shark Week programming, including a show titled "Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White."
Discovery Channel called it"an event so monumental that no one has ever attempted it before … the world's most decorated athlete takes on the ocean's most efficient predator…the race is on!"
Earlier this month, Phelps tweeted out this photo of a great white:
I was able to do something that I had always wanted to do! https://t.co/2CJplWMkMP

Though how the 23-time Olympic gold medalist is actually going to swim against this great white set of jaws remains unclear.
Live every week like it's Shark Week.
