Did I mention she's 64 years old?Nat Geo article talks a bit about physiology and physical hazards. (This was Nyad's nth attempt, previous attempts having been aborted due to sharks and jellyfish).Post musing on women endurance athletes in the recent past, comparing Nyad and Julie Moss' famous Ironman finish.My longest open water swims were only 5K, in freshwater. My hat's off to Nyad. Very damn impressive.

Very impressive indeed. And good for her to keep trying after the failed attempts. A true example of determination.
