Image 7 of 15


Diana Nyad plays a trumpet before her 2011 attempt to swim to Florida from Havana. Ms. Nyad was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1986 and the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003. Appropriately, 'Nyad' is a variant of the Greek name Naiad, which means 'water nymph.'
