SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. /ScoopCloud/ -- Having received Diana Nyad's submissions for official swim ratification twice, the World Open Water Swimming Association (WOWSA) would like to provide perspective on Netflix's upcoming film "Nyad" featuring Annette Bening and Jodie Foster. It is important for viewers to understand that this film is based on Diana Nyad's book, which has not been rigorously fact-checked . There is a potential risk that audiences might perceive this docudrama as a fully factual account of Nyad's swim from Cuba to Florida.
