U.S. long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, meets with a group of fellow endurance swimmers to answer skeptics about her record-breaking crossing of the Florida Straits last week, on a conference call in Huntington Beach, California September 10, 2013. Nyad vigorously defended on Tuesday her record-breaking, 110-mile (177-km) swim from Cuba to southern Florida after skeptics raised questions about the grueling trek. A triumphant Nyad, 64, staggered ashore in Key West, Florida, on Sept. 2, after having swum about 53 hours, to become the first person to complete the treacherous crossing without a shark cage. Nyad's swim was her fifth attempt and only successful one. The highly publicized crossing sparked a social media debate about whether her journey meets the requirements to break the world record.

As my eyes manoeuvred themselves back to the magazine, I registered a vaguely familiar face opposite me. So, I looked up again. This time with a jerk.
