For the woman who has finally completed an amazing swim : Diana Nyad 1st to Swim to Florida From Cuba Without Cage.
What’s more she is 64 years old & this is the fifth attempt.

She completed her swim 53 hours after starting her journey from Havana on Saturday.
As she approached, spectators waded into waist-high water and surrounded her, taking pictures and cheering her on.


“I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, you’re never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it is a team,” she said on the beach.

“I have to say, I’m a little bit out of it right now,” Nyad said. She gestured toward her swollen lips, and simply said “seawater.”

Well done that woman , you have my deepest respect !!
