This woman just can NOT stop swimming!!

While you were busy sleeping or watching American Horror Story last night, Diana Nyad was busy doing her 48-hour Swim For Relief to help raise money for Hurricane Sandy!

Well Nikki Reed made her way to NYC to show her support, but she had no intentions of simply standing poolside and watching!

Instead, the Twilight slipped her sexy body into a floral Olaya Beach one-piece swimsuit and jumped in the pool herself!!

Not only is it great to see Diana raise awareness for such a great cause, but it's also been amazing to see all of the people who have come out to show their support for her!!

And remember, Diana: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming!!

Ch-ch-check out more pics of Nikki showing off her swimming skills (below)!

Joe Manganiello brought his muscles and his stubble to see Diana Nyad continue to be one of the most badass women on the planet!

Not only did she complete her swim from Florida to Cuba, but she decided to NOT stop there! She decided that she needed to support something a lot of people have already forgotten about, but shouldn't: Hurricane Sandy relief!

She's swimming for 48 hours straight for the cause, and got quite the bonus when Joe Manganiello showed up to give his support!

Keep up the awesome work, Diana!

After her record-setting swim from Havana, Cuba to Florida, you would think Diana Nyad would hit up the nearest McDonald's to replenish the calories she burned with greasy goodness!

But unfortunately, she says her mouth was damaged from all of the salt water and she "stayed away from food for a week."

However, there was ONE thing she was able to eat:

Diana Nyad's 5th Time Was A Charm! Completes Historical Swim From Cuba To Florida!

Filed under: SwimmingAmazing

diana nyad completes swim cuba florida

She must be some sort of shark whisperer!

But more than that, she is one helluva AH-Mazing swimmer.

After failing with four previous attempts, Diana Nyad has completed the 103-mile swim from Havana, Cuba to the Southern tip of Florida at the ridiculous age of 64 years old!

Not only did she complete the swim in about 52 hours, but she did it without a shark tank. This officially makes her the first person to swim this location without protection as well as this being the longest distance anyone has swam without a tank!

Susie Maroney of Australia is the only other person to swim the Florida straight.

What makes this even more incredible was Diana had confirmed before the even that this would be her last attempt.

What a way to go out!

Congrats, gurl!

61-Year-Old Swimmer Begins Non-Stop Swim From Cuba To Florida

Filed under: InspirationFitnessSwimming

It has begun!

61-year-old Diana Nyad took the first stroke of her 103-mile swim between Cuba and Florida on Sunday night at 7:45pm.

The world-class swimmer, who was the first to swim around Manhattan island and ALREADY swam the longest swim in history, has been training for the 60 hour swim for the past two years.

She failed to make the trip in the summer of 1978 because of nasty weather, but is trying again to prove "the 60s are the new 40s" and hopes to inspire others, saying:

"When I walk up on those shores of Florida, I want to prove to the AARP crowd that it's not too late to go back and write that book or adopt that child."

We're not even in our 40s yet and we're inspired, so we're sure anyone with an AARP card may rethink their capabilities.

Good luck in the water, Diana! We can't wait to see you reach the shores of Florida!

Check out the video above for more details on Diana's record-setting attempt at an open-water swim without a shark cage!
