Phelps is set to participate in the special event "Shark: Great Gold Vs Great White." Discovery is already calling the special “an event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before” in its press release. Although specific details as to what the show will entail are under wraps, Phelps did take to social media to share that he got to dive with sharks.
I was able to do something that I had always wanted to do! https://t.co/2CJplWMkMP
