Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who completed a record swim Monday from Cuba to Key West, Florida without a shark cage at age 64, has said that the experience was like hell on earth.

According to CBS News, Nyad said there were moments during her 110-mile swim from Cuba to Key West that she had some doubt.

However, the 64-year-old said that she slept like a baby the night after, and kept waking up and smiling.

Nyad had swollen lips after she emerged from the waters and looked in a lot of discomfort. (ANI)
