Questions linger over US swimmer Diana Nyad's record swim
MIAMI (REUTERS) - US long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad has agreed to turn over all her navigation data and official observer logs on her record-breaking swim from Cuba to southern Florida last week, after skeptics raised questions about the grueling crossing.
"I think it will be more than enough to settle the question, did she swim from A to B?" Steven Munatones, a California-based chief administrator of the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame, said on Wednesday.
But he said some swimmers still had "more nuanced questions of how she swam from A to B."
A triumphant Nyad, 64, staggered ashore in Key West, Florida, on Sept 2, after having swum about 53 hours, to become the first person to complete the treacherous 110-mile (177 km) crossing without a shark cage.
