According to CNN, the Olympian is set to race a Great White shark during Shark Week.
The eight-day marathon begins July 23. This year marks the 29th anniversary of Shark Week.
The swimmer will appear twice, once in an event called "Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs Great White" and a second time in "Shark School with Michael Phelps."
