Diana Nyad - Cuba to Florida Swim: The first 24 hours: Steve Munatones shares his observations of Diana Nyad

Confidence is high, she is nearly a quarter of the way at the time this video was created.

What a joke. Diana touches & pushes off the boat in this video: - which would be an automatic DQ in any other marathon swim. But when you're Diana, you get to make up your own rules as you go along!

Yes, I believe that would be a "DQ" in an English Channel or a Catalina Channel crossing but this is a new beast with no rules.

You being both a professional and a purist I can understand the consternation with the nuances of this crossing but why the hostility?
