Cuba-to-Florida swimmer Nyad plows on after storm
KEY WEST, Florida – Diana Nyad slogged across the Straits of Florida for a third straight day Monday, hopeful she could fend off hypothermia, jellyfish and stormy weather as she inched toward a swimming record.
Nyad, who turns 63 on Wednesday, is making her third attempt since last summer to become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. She also made a failed try with a cage in 1978.
"She's doing well," a spokeswoman for the swimmer, Alex Crotin, said Monday afternoon.
