US swimmer Diana Nyad jumps into the ocean at theErnest Hemingway Nautical Club in Havana on September 23, 2011. Senior US distance swimmer Diana Nyad will plunge into the ocean on Friday for a third attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida, Cuban authorities said. Shoulder pain, asthma and ocean swells prevented Nyad, 62, in August to fulfill her quest to swim the 100 miles (161 kilometers) across the treacherous Florida Straits from Havana from Key West, Florida.
