A few weeks ago we heard that Michael Phelps will be racing a great white shark for Discovery Channel's "Shark Week," and now we have a few more details.
Phelps told Entertainment Weekly that the 100 meter race did go down in open water, so he and the shark weren't separated. They didn't race side by side though, and there were 15 safety divers in the water to make sure he didn't get attacked.
You can catch the race when "Shark Week" kicks off on July 23rd.
