| Filed under: InspirationAgingSwimming

Aww! Such a bummer to hear, but marathon swimmer Diana Nyad has abandoned her 60 plus hour swim from Cuba to Florida after roughly 30 continuous hours in the water.

She reportedly began vomiting on top of suffering through asthma and a very sore shoulder.

Despite not being able to complete the challenge, she's STILL proved what she set out to prove. Age don't mean a thang!

The 61-year-old swimmer still spent more continuous hours swimming than most have spent in their lives TOTAL!

While "sad" she could not complete her dream, she confirmed canceling the rest of the trip "was absolutely the right call".

For more coverage from the team of reporters who covered her entire journey, check out the video above!
