Nyad 1st to swim to Florida from Cuba without cage - NewsTimes
(AP) — Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad waded ashore Monday and became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage. "More than the athletic feat, she wants to send a message of peace, love, friendship and happiness ... between the people of the United States and Cuba," he added. President Barack Obama was among a flurry of public officials and celebrities who tweeted congratulations. Nyad's previous try was cut short amid boat trouble, storms, unfavorable currents and jellyfish stings that left her face puffy and swollen. The new silicone mask caused bruises inside her mouth, making it difficult for her to speak, she told her team as she neared land. Covington said Nyad was given IV fluids on her arrival to combat dehydration and was resting and being checked out at a medical center as a precaution. The support team accompanying her had equipment that generated a faint electrical field around her, designed to keep sharks at bay. Australian Susie Maroney successfully swam the Strait in 1997 with a shark cage, which besides protection from the predators, has a drafting effect that pulls a swimmer along. Nyad is also an author of three books, a motivational speaker and has been a reporter and commentator for NPR.
