After almost 53 hours, 64-year-old Diana Nyad successfully completed her fifth attempt in 35 years and became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.

She was 8 years old when she first dreamed about swimming across the Straits of Florida, and 29 when she first tried the swim. She demonstrates now that “you can dream at any age”.
