Diana Nyad hit a Man o’ War, but battles on


Portuguese Man o' War from belowIt has been a challenging night and for Diana Nyad, now some 57000 strokes and well into the next day of swimming from Cuba to USA, she hit a Portuguese Man o’ War, suffered from multiple stings and had to tread water for half an hour, rehydrate and change suit. Her stroke pace dropped from the usual 52-55 to 48, but has since picked up again and is gaining strength according to her Facebook page and Twitter. Via Forbes.
