Get A Glimpse Into Michael Phelps’ Underwater Shark Cage


The GOAT that is Michael Phelps was on the morning TV program, ‘Good Morning America’ yesterday, promoting the much-hyped Shark Week opener which pits the 23-time Olympic medalist against a great white.

‘Great Gold vs. Great White’ is slated to premiere on Sunday, July 23rd on the Discovery Network, but you can get a taste of Phelps’ entire undersea adventure by watching the video below. You’ll get an up close encounter with the beasts chewing away at Phelps’ suddenly frail-looking cage while he feels each vibration and rattle.

Below is Discovery network’s description of the program set for Sunday and you can watch the official promo video here.
