U.S. long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad cheers before attempting to swim to Florida from Havana

U.S. long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad cheers before attempting to swim to Florida from Havana August 31, 2013. Nyad jumped into the calm, turquoise waters of Cuba on Saturday and began making her way towards home, Key West Florida, in pursuit of a dream that she says nearly cost her life during a previous attempt last year. Her biggest challenges during the 103 mile (166-km) swim, apart from fatigue, will be the poisonous jelly fish that float through the Florida Straits, the sharks, the man o'wars, storms, waves and the powerful and unpredictable Gulf Stream, the mighty ocean current that flows west to east between Cuba and Florida.
