Diana was 28 years old when she first attempted to swim from Havana to Key West, Florida—just one year after President Jimmy Carter let strict Kennedy-era travel restrictions between the countries expire. Unfortunately, a strong current pushed Diana, who was swimming inside a protective shark cage, miles off course and into the Gulf of Mexico. When her team scooped her out of the water, she was less than halfway to her goal.
