AC vs Phelps: The 2012 rematch
Four years ago, Anderson Cooper challenged Olympic champion Michael Phelps to a one-lap race. Anyone want to guess how that went? (Imagine competing against a dolphin.)
Even with a significant handicap--Phelps wasn't allowed to dive in, take strokes or breaths--the swimming phenom easily swept past our brave correspondent.
This week, they meet again for a rematch (oh, and also for a 60 Minutes story about Phelps' preparation for the summer Olympics in London... but enough about that.) This time, The Olympian and The TV Reporter face off on dry land, where Mr. Phelps loses some degree of advantage.
As you'll see, Anderson takes an early lead. Then things get interesting. Can Anderson Cooper finally win one for Team 60 Minutes?
