Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad is nearly three-quarters of the way through her marathon Manhattan swim to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Distance swimmer Diana Nyad spoke Tuesday night with critics and skeptics who have argued that she cheated on her swim from Cuba to Florida.
Cracking jokes and gesturing energetically, Nyad heaped praise on the members of the team that accompanied her, from a young man who swam beside her and encouraged her to keep going, to a box jellyfish expert who kept an eye out for the deadly creatures that ruined her past attempts.
Her goal of swimming from Cuba to Florida appearing elusive, Diana Nyad was out of the water Tuesday morning, being checked by doctors on a boat after multiple jellyfish stings and bad weather hampered her swim.
