Diana Nyad, one of the all-time great adventurers in history who swam 50 miles (80 km) along the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and 102.5 miles (165 km) from North Bimini, Bahamas to Juno Beach, Florida in 1972, is always pushing the envelope.

She has always exceeded expectations, whether it was a marathon race or a 42-hour solo swim from Cuba to Florida.

Word has it that she recently did a five-hour non-stop training swim, working in some tough workouts as she launches Brava Body. We sense a major swim coming up from the former pro and are looking forward to something spectacular.
