Diana Nyad answers skeptics of her historic swim: "We went from the rocks of Cuba to the sand of Florida without ever touching that boat .... our team is squeaky clean"

Roughly a week since completing a historic open water swim that spanned more than two days and covered more than 100 miles, on Wednesday evening Dyana Nyad joined "Piers Morgan Live" for a primetime exclusive interview.

With much of the swimming community questioning Nyad's record, in the process suggesting that the 64-year-old was aided by a series of questionable advantages, she used her live appearance to answer some of the critics:

"I guess it's two-fold. Number one, fair enough. You set a big record like that, I mean, my God, not just me, people have been trying since 1950 to get across. It did seem nearly impossible," noted Nyad. "Most of my crew thought it was impossible. So someone does it, whether it was me, or somebody else, it better be vetted. It better be vetted right down to the nth degree."

That being said, Nyad insisted that her swim in the water was entirely above board:

"Was it fair? Was it fair and square? We have done that. We've provided now all our logs. There's just no doubting," she told Piers Morgan. "It was clear that we went from the rocks of Cuba to the sand of Florida without ever touching that boat. Without ever getting out on the boat. Without ever using fins, or, anything that would be untoward. Our team is squeaky clean."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Nyad, including the portion where she answers each criticism individually, in the process explaining how her pace more than doubled after 27 hours in the water (hint: she got some help from the current.) And for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
