"I have three messages," said the breathless Nyad."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."

So inspirational!

That is so cool! I felt bad for her on those other attempts, when she had to stop. I'm glad she was able to succeed this time.

She's 64. SIXTY-FOUR! She's been working to achieve this for 35 years. I can't imagine the level of determination that takes.

I heard about her on the radio last week and was wondering if she'd make it.

Thanks for the update .

BRAVO!!!! A true inspiration!!!!
