Diana Nyad Completes Cuba Swim

World-record distance swimmer Diana Nyad first tried to swim from Cuba to the U.S. in 1978. It was not successful. Just a few minutes ago, at age 64, Nyad reached Key West, Florida, successfully completing the 103-mile swim in her fifth attempt. She swam for 52 hours and set a world record for a distance swim without a shark cage.
