Discovery really dropped the ball on this one after promising to the internets that Michael Phelps would race a great white to kick off 'Shark Week'.
Well, the shark was fake. The race happened, but Phelps was up against a computer-generated simulation of a shark.
Want to know who won?
Watch the race...

The anger over Michael Phelps not actually racing a shark reminds me how badly we need to revive "Man vs. Beast"... pic.twitter.com/I9qV2UTQtZ— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) July 24, 2017
