Just a month and a half after her first attempt, 62-year-old Diana Nyad tried again to complete a cage-less swim from Havana to Florida, only to be stopped 40 hours and 92 miles in (just 11 miles short of the 103 mile goal) by Man ‘o War and Box Jellyfish stings. She says she’s learned to respect the ocean and won’t try again. I have trouble believing her.
A few pics here. Pretty gnarly.
