61-year-old Diana Nyad is back in the water. Again.
American endurance swimmer Diana Nyad is making her third attempt
(and second in as many months) to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage, a distance of 103 miles. Her previous attempt failed after a crippling asthma attack. At the time, she swore she wouldn't try again, but a week later she was already having second thoughts
