"Michaal Phelps. 39 records".

In particular, according to the program presented on Discovery's official Facebook page, Phelps VS Shark will be presented on June 23rd.

Great white sharks cruise at about 5 miles per hour, but can reach speeds of 25mph. Phelps now holds the individual world record in the 100 m and 200 m butterfly.
