U.S. swimmer Diana Nyad begins her attempt to swim to Florida from Havana
U.S. swimmer Diana Nyad begins her attempt to swim to Florida from Havana August 7, 2011. The 61-year-old plunged into the Straits of Florida at dusk on Sunday to begin what she hopes will be a world record 103-mile (168 km) swim from Cuba to Florida. The same swim was completed successfully by Australian Susan Maroney in May 1997. But Nyad's claim to a world record will be that unlike Maroney, she is doing it without a shark cage in the strait's warm, shark-infested waters. Nyad will be protected by a surrounding electrical field and by divers who will watch for sharks and drive them away if they get too close. REUTERS/Desmond Boylan (CUBA - Tags: ODDLY SPORT SWIMMING)
