Trailblazer: Diana Nyad Swims from Cuba to Key West, Florida

Congratulations to 64-year-old Diana Nyad who made her dream of swimming from Cuba to Key West, Florida without a shark cage a reality. She did it! She's the first person to accomplish this feat.

Diana tried to make the journey when she was 28 years old. She never lost her desire to conquer that 112 mile ocean swim. It took her five attempts through the years before she could make it work.

Diana says to never give up!
