Nyad isn't planning to slow down after Cuba swim
United States endurance swimmer Diana Nyad talks to the media, during a press conference in Key West, Fla., Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. She said the biggest challenge was swallowing large amounts of seawater, which made her vomit often. The 64-year-old is the first swimmer to make the 110-mile (177-kilometer) journey without a shark cage. She appeared refreshed and invigorated less than 24 hours after arriving dazed and sunburned, with lips swollen, in Florida. Her swim lasted 53 hours, with pauses for nourishment.
