Who Swims Faster: Michael Phelps or an Indo-Pacific Sailfish?

Memorial Day means its time to open your swimming pool! With swimming season around the corner, we thought we’d share this fun infographic from ZoologyDegreeOnline.com about two fast swimmers: Michael Phelps and the Indo-Pacific Sailfish.

Which is faster? Michael Phelps is fast, but his record time of 49.82 seconds in the 100-meter butterfly (4.49 mph) is no match for the sailfish, which reaches speeds close to 70 miles per hour.
