Diana Nyad arrived at her destination: a dream fulfilled. She is the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the protection of a shark cage. Her remarks upon arrival: never give up…you are never too old to chase your dreams…and no such thing as a solitary sport - her team assisted with this amazing feat. She was quickly escorted to an aid car for transport to a local hospital to have her health assessed. Her spirits? just fine, thank you.
