Diana Nyad, after swim: 'You're never to old to chase your dreams' explains she swam 52 hours and 54 minutes. From Havana to Smathers Beach in Key West, FL, it is 110 miles.
The 64 year-old swimmer had failed four times. First in 1978 when she was only 28. Then she tried again in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Like the fictional boxer Rocky, she kept punching.
Isn't it terrific! She had three observations - a) we should never give up, b) you're never too old to chase your dreams, c) it looks like a solitary sport, but it's a team.
President Barack Obama tweeted, 'Congratulations to @DianaNyad. Never give up on your dreams.' An inspiration for all of us.
