Swimmer Diana Nyad is attempting another extreme challenge! You remember her name because just last month she completed a record-breaking swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark tank!
Now she's planning on swimming for 48 hours continuously! Why, you ask? Well, it's for a good cause! She's swimming to support Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts!
A 42,000-gallon, 120-foot-long pool is set up at Herald Square in Midtown Manhattan for the swim-a-thon
