Anderson Cooper Challenged Michael Phelps, lost

Anderson Cooper challenged gold medal Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for race across the pool on 60 minutes. You'll never guess who won. Well, you probably will.

Cooper’s Voice over: Since he was in good spirits, and relatively out of shape, we decided to see how the world’s greatest swimmer would do against a middle aged mortal. But there were conditions...

Cooper: How about if I, I get to dive, and I get to do freestyle..

Phelps: Okay

Cooper: One lap. You go underwater the whole way, you can’t breathe, and you can’t take a stroke.

Phelps: Let’s go! Let’s do it!

Cooper: And you’ll still beat me?

Phelps: Let’s go! (laughter)

Cooper: (laughter) Okay, I’m going to go change.

Considering Michael said 'let's go' before Anderson finished his sentence kinda tells you he's confident that he'll kick some ass in the pool... and he did.

Did Anderson really think he'd beat Michael Phelps?
