After four failed attempts, Diana Nyad emerged onto the shores of Key West, Florida, after completing a 110-mile, fifty-three-hour, record-breaking swim through shark-infested waters from Cuba. Why, at age 64, was she able to achieve what she could not as a young Olympian? She shares her unforgettable journey â€“ physical, spiritual, emotional, psychological â€“a triumphant tale about facing fears, following a passion, and living life with no regrets. A sports broadcaster filing for NPR, Fox Sports, ABCâ€™s Wide World of Sports, and the New York Times, Nyad is one of our most compelling storytellers.
