(AP) Diana Nyad is planning to meet with members of the marathon swimming community who are skeptical about her 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida.


In a statement Monday, Nyad's spokeswoman says the 64-year-old endurance athlete is proud of her accomplishment and "committed to complete transparency."


Since Nyad finished her swim last week, long-distance swimmers have been debating in online forums whether Nyad got into or held onto the boat accompanying her. They say she could not have picked up as much speed as she says she did from the fast-moving Gulf Stream current.


Nyad's team says she'll meet Tuesday with "her peers in the swimming community." Her navigator and one of the swim's official observers say Nyad swam the entire distance herself without aid in favorable currents.
