UPCOMING

This event has expired.

Long Distance Swimmer and Sports Broadcaster, at the age of 64, in her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad successfully fulfilled her lifelong dream of completing the 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida in 2013. Upon completing her grueling 53-hour journey, a breathless Nyad told the world, “I have three messages. One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three, it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.” Her fame as a distance swimmer and fitness icon led to a career in sports broadcasting, journalism.
