A video of Diana Nyad’s interview on the Ellen Show after completing the swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage and being the first to do it.
I was very surprised to hear her call swimming boring! She reiterates much of what we have been saying in class about the sensory deprivation and tells about some hallucinations she has experienced.
Another segment from the interview shows a mask Nyad had to wear during her swim and her inspiration.
This is definitely not something I considered with open water swimming. I thought this interview gives lots of good points about open water swimming. Very interesting to hear while getting ready for our trek through Lake Hartwell!
