Diana Nyad swim “questions” going viral!
From the New York Times (no less!):
"Celebration Gives Way to Questions and Doubt After a Record Swim...Nyad has long been a lightning rod among swimmers who object to the publicity she seeks and the tactics she employs — like letting her crew remove her stinger suit and apply lotions...Marathoner online forums have buzzed with speculation as to whether Nyad got a power boost by climbing aboard her boat."
From The AP (no less!)
"Many wonder about a roughly seven-hour stretch when Nyad apparently didn’t stop to eat or drink, recalling her 2012 attempt when she got onto the boat for hours during rough weather. Nyad eventually got back into the water to try finishing, but her team was criticized for delaying the release of that information to the public."
