    Nope. The design of the human body is simply not capable of swimming that fast. Olympic champions are nowhere near as fast as a shark, or many other fish.

    Unlikely.

    Humans at their peak athleticism can swim at best around 6 mph — Michael Phelps topped out around there in 2010, according to ESPN, and that's still about three times faster than the average human swimmer. 

    A shortfin mako shark, on other hand, can hit top speeds of about 60 mph.

    Yes. Plenty of people can swim faster than a shark. But the shark has to be dead or have it’s fins cut off
