JENKS, Okla. — One brave Oklahoman is swimming in the shark tank today at the Oklahoma Aquarium.

The aquarium, along with "Sharklahoma," is hosting the second annual "Dive with the Bull Sharks" event.

The drivers entered a contest for the chance to swim with the bull sharks. In fact, it's the largest collection of bull sharks in the world.

The winning contestant was chosen earlier this month and will suit up later today in a 20-pound, $6,000 dollar chainmail suit as they get their chance to get up close and personal.
