Diana Nyad's swim from Cuba

Image 13 of 15


Diana Nyad swims between Cuba and Florida while accompanied by two assistants in kayaks and an assistance boat on Aug. 7. Instead of swimming in a shark cage, which provides a helpful draft for the swimmer, Nyad will be protected by an electrical field and by divers who will watch for sharks and drive them away if they get too close.
