Nyad ends what could be her final try at Florida-Cuba swim
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — It seems like yesterday Diana Nyad was doing swimmingly. It was yesterday. But Tuesday morning, the sexagenarian swimmer was pulled from the waters of the Florida Straits, about 50 miles short of success.
Just over a year ago, Nyad was halting another attempt to swim from Cuba to Key West, Fla. Last year, ocean swells, shoulder pain and asthma did her in. This year, it was storm squalls and jellyfish that foiled the veteran long-distance swimmer’s fourth attempt at the 103-mile swim.
