Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O’Neal would deluge Michael Phelps in a cannonball competition. What about a race across the pool? We’ll see. The NBA superstar will star in “Shaq Vs.,” a TV series where the 15-time all-star centre will challenge top athletes in their respective sports. On Aug. 18 on ABC, Shaq will swim against Olympic superstar Phelps. O’Neal also will try his football skills against Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, box retired world champion Oscar De La Hoya, bat against St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols, trade tennis volleys with Wimbledon champ Serena Williams and play volleyball against Olympic gold medallists Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor.

O’Neal will negotiate a handicap with his opponents and train for one week leading up to each challenge.
