64 year old Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.
It was her 5th attempt…
“Her fourth attempt, made in August 2011, was
called off early after she was stung in two separate attacks by box
jellyfish whose deadly venom has claimed more human lives in the past 50
years than shark bites. Nyad said the stings felt like having her
entire body submerged in hot, burning oil. “I was yelling: ‘Fire, fire,
fire!'” she recalled….”
She’s inspired, inspirational, strong AND… on Twitter!

Nyad said she represents a commitment never to give up on something “important to your heart — you look and see what’s inside yourself and you find a way.”
