    Diana Nyad to Swim 48 Hours for Sandy Relief

    US swimmer Diana Nyad swims offshore from the Ernest Hemingway Nautical Club in  Havana on September 23, 2011. Senior US distance swimmer Diana Nyad will plunge into the ocean on Friday for a third attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida, Cuban authorities said.
