Diana Nyad swam from Havana, Cuba and Florida

Xtreme Dream is the goal of 64-year-old Diana Nyad to achieve her lifelong dream of swimming 103 miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage that she finally realized on 2 September 2013 after swimming solo for 52 hours 54 minutes from Havana, Cuba to Streamer's Beach, Florida.

History

Diana is a famed endurance swimmer who previously hit her peak in the 1970's when she attempted to swim this distance in 1978, but was pulled out after 42 hours.

Motivation

When asked her motivation, Diana explained, "Because I'd like to prove to the other 60-year-olds that it is never too late to start your dreams."

Nyad’s second attempt to complete this swim has gained the attention of thousands of supporters, including the official sponsorship by Secret Deodorant, which has created an entire social platform on Facebook for fans to share encouraging messages and support.
