World Record Swim Attempt

(video source)

Reknowned distance swimmer Diana Nyad {wiki} is almost 62 years old. But she is swimming today, off the coast of Cuba, heading to Key West. She entered the water just before Sunset last night. This time, instead of a shark cage, she will be surrounded by an electronic shark deterrent. The swim, if successful, is expected to take 60 hours. Link

CNN has an interactive map with which you can follow her progress. Link

Update: Nyad abandoned her attempt about halfway through. Link
