Diana is an endurance swimmer. She has broken and continues to hold several world records for swimming. She attempted to swim from Cuba to Florida last year and failed after being stung by several box jellyfish and Portuguese man-of-wars. They pulled her out of the water after swimming for 29 hours.
She has not given up her dream and has continued to train for this swim. She is currently standing by and waiting for the right weather conditions for another attempt.
Diana is going to be 63 years old in August.
I love the outlook in this video of her stating "Life sometimes seems unfair, so what are you gonna do?"
