HAVANA (AP) -

The support team for Australian endurance swimmer Chloe McCardel says she has ended her attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida.

   A news release Wednesday night says the swim ended after 11 hours due to a "debilitating" jelly fish sting.

   She was trying to become the first person to swim across the Straits of Florida nonstop without a shark cage.
