If you’ve never tuned in to ‘Shark Week’ on Discovery Channel, this may be a great reason to watch this summer.

Olympian Michael Phelps will actually race a shark.

No seriously.

According to a release from Discovery, Phelps will get in the water and take part in the most interesting race of his career.

Shark Week will air on the Discovery Channel from July 23rd through July 30th.  In addition to racing a shark, Phelps will go to ‘shark school’ at the Bimini Shark Lab. His episode will air on the first and last days of ‘Shark Week’.

So is Michael excited about this?  Check out his latest Instagram post:

Sharks on average swim about 5 mph; however, GREAT WHITE sharks can reach speeds of up to 25 mph!  This is gonna be interesting.
