APTOPIX Cuba Swimming To Florida


U.S. swimmer Diana Nyad begins her swim from Cuba to Florida at the Hemingway Marina in Havana, Cuba, Friday Sept. 23, 2011. Endurance athlete Nyad will attempt for a second time to swim from Cuba to Florida in hopes of setting a world record at the age of 62. The Los Angeles woman fell short in a previous attempt at the swim last month, calling it off after 29 hours in the water and about halfway through the 103-mile (166-kilometer) journey.
