Swimmer Sets Record With 15-Foot Shark Chasing Her!!

Filed under: Tech TalkSwimmingSharkAmazing

A swimmer set a record while a 15-foot tiger shark was tailing her!!

Meredith Novack is the first woman to swim the almost 20-mile round trip between the Hawaiian islands of Lanai and Maui.

Not only did she complete the swim, but she did it 44 minutes faster than the men's record!!

Oh, and she was being tailed by a 15-foot tiger shark the whole time!!!

The 37-year-old had no idea the monster was right behind her… because her crew didn't tell her!!

Though she was apparently glad they said nothing. She wanted to concentrate on the swim, and, besides, she felt protected because of her Shark Shield!!

What's Shark Shield? Their website defines it as:

"Two electrodes that emit electric waves, creating an elliptical-shaped field around a swimmer or diver."

This electrical field shield really bugs sharks and forces them to keep their distance.

Thank goodness for her Shark Shield or else that 15-footer might've had himself a tasty swimmer snack!

Though maybe if she knew that shark was behind her, she would've knocked another few minutes off that record! LOLz!

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!

Apparently, Jennifer Aniston could not stop HAHA-ing at co-star Katherine Hahn!

Especially during her monologue in We're The Millers where Katherine's character talks about her "shallow vagina." Nothing like some vaginal HIGHlarity!

In a recent interview, the Horrible Bosses star was asked if there was a particular scene in We're The Millers where she had a horrible time trying to keep a straight face. Here's what Jen said:
