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 All-Star center will challenge top athletes in their respective
sports. During one episode, which debuts on Aug. 8 on ABC, Shaq
will swim against Olympic superstar Phelps.

O'Neal, now with the Cleveland Cavaliers, also will try his
football skills against Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger,
box retired world champion Oscar De La Hoya, trade tennis volleys
with Wimbledon champ Serena Williams and play volleyball against
Olympic gold medalists 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.
