Sharks Absent, Swimmer, 64, Strokes From Cuba to Florida

This is something to consider when your concern is age. Diana Nyad (born August 22, 1949), an American author, journalist, motivational speaker, at age 64, became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the protection of a shark cage or using swim fins, swimming from Havana to Key West. Here is an article about Diana in New York Times and her excellent inspirational speech at TEDxTalks below.
