Just over one year later, Diana tried again. She set out from Cuba on August 31, 2013—and realized her dream. After nearly 53 hours and 110 miles, she emerged onto Smathers Beach in Key West as the first person to swim the Florida Straits without a shark cage. Moments after setting foot on the beach, Diana said to supporters, "I have three messages: One is we should never, ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team."
