Diana swim tracker: Watch Nyad's progress

Update: Diana Nyad ended her swim about 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, suffering from shoulder pain and nausea.  She is on a boat headed for Key West, Florida. Check back with CNN.com for updates.


Distance swimmer Diana Nyad is attempting a 103-mile swim from Cuba to Key West. She entered the water Sunday around 7:45 p.m. ET, from Havana's Hemingway Marina. On Monday afternoon  she more than 20 miles off Cuba and struggling with shoulder pain and asthma but continuing to swim strongly, CNN's Matt Sloane reported.

Watch: Nyad 'doing great' on swim

CNN is the only network accompanying Nyad on her swim, which could take 60 hours or longer.  Producer Matt Sloane is leading a CNN team traveling on  one of Nyad's chase boats. They are carrying a SPOT GPS tracker, which transmits the group's position via satellite.

Sloane will be Tweeting throughout the swim, and he'll appear live on CNN from time to time to update viewers on the 61-year-old swimmer's progress. Nyad's team also will be Tweeting and blogging.

Check back to watch her progress. And coming  on CNN,  Dr. Sanjay Gupta takes a  look at "Diana Nyad: Xtreme Dream." Saturday, September 17, 8 p.m. ET.

    Just read that you ended the attempt. While media will use the word "fail," that is disingenuous if not insulting as you are truly a winner to blaze a new trail and inspire us all to make it as far as you did. I salute you!

    Diana, you are amazing! I thought the 5K Big Shoulders swim in Chicago was tough. And I'm two years your junior. You inspire, motivate and let us all know, whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve. That you didn't finish takes away nothing from your feat. I truly admire you. Thank you!

    Wow, you are such a champion! I'm inspired by what you've achieved. I truly believed you would make it, but our bodies can only endure so much. I'm 31 and recently started on a weight loss journey. Some days I feel old and creaky, but I look at what you're doing and know I can persevere. Congrats on all that you've done Diana!

    I precisely desired to appreciate you once again. I am not sure the things I would've worked on without the actual strategies shared by you about such a subject. It absolutely was a real challenging matter for me personally, but considering a new specialised mode you handled that took me to leap over gladness. I am just happy for the guidance and thus expect you really know what an amazing job that you're undertaking teaching many people using a blog. More than likely you've never met all of us.
