We can all agree that swimming 110 miles in shark infested waters is not only terrifying but amazing. Some people are being very critical of Diana Nyad. She swam 110-miles from Cuba to Florida.

According to the NY Daily News she is being criticized on social media and on the online Marathon Swimmers Forum, long-distance swimmers have been debating whether Nyad got a boost from the boat that was accompanying her,  either by getting in it or holding onto it, during a particularly speedy stretch of her swim. They also question whether she violated the traditions of her sport. Many follow strict guidelines known as the English Channel rules by using a specialized mask and wetsuit to protect herself from jellyfish.
