Nyad stung in face by something, switches to “staged swim”


Diana Nyad was yesterday evening stung in the face by some kind of presumed jellyfish, and had to go out of the water for some hours to be treated by doctors. Her face and area the area around her eyes was affected, but she’s back in the water, swim switching to a “staged swim”, meaning that it may occur in stages. She will still be able to set a world record, now in the staged swim category, rather than as a non-stop swim. Follow her progress here on diananyad.com.
