Diana Nyad
On September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage, swimming 111 miles in fifty-three hours from Havana to Key West. In the 1970s, she became known as the world’s greatest long distance swimmer with her open-water achievements, including a record-breaking swim around Manhattan. For the next thirty years, Nyad was a prominent sports broadcaster and journalist, filing compelling stories for National Public Radio, ABC’S Wide World of Sports, and others. She is the author of the recently published memoir, Find a Way, which is climbing up the best sellers list, and three other books, is a national fitness icon, is a talented linguist, and is one of today’s most powerful and engaging public speakers. Her determination and spirit match our brand voice and her story is sure to inspire, engage and align with our One Voice themed conference.
