Andy Olday was part of the Shark Team of Diana Nyad’s fourth attempt to cross the 103-mile distance between Cuba and Florida. Olday worked with brothers Nico Gazzale and Matteo Gazzale, and Luke Tipple, a quartet of personal bodyguards (against sharks) for Nyad in the Florida Straits.

Olday also helped guide Chloë McCardel to an unprecedented 124.4 km (77.3 mile), 41 hour 21 minute marathon swim from Lighthouse Beach on the southern tip of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas to Nassau between 20-22 October 2014 that was completed under Marathon Swimmers Federation rules. Her swim was reason for McCardel to be nominated for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year.
