U.S. swimmer Diana Nyad waves to journalists as she is driven to the dock to begin her swim from Cuba to Florida at the Hemingway Marina in Havana, Cuba, Friday Sept. 23, 2011. Endurance athlete Nyad began on Friday her second attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida and set a world record at the age of 62. The Los Angeles woman fell short in a previous attempt at the swim last month, calling it off after 29 hours in the water and about halfway through the 103-mile (166-kilometer) journey.
