It was Diana Nyad’s fourth attempt since she began in 1978, and she was swearing it would be her last. Her main obstacle was presence of box jellyfish, which nearly stung her to death during previous tries. This time, she wore a prosthetic face mask for protection, and swam the 110 miles (+/-) in just 53 hours.
