I just realized that I remember her first attempt when I was a little girl of 9. This is so moving to me that she persevered and *made* it. Between her and Wendy "Filibuster" Davis there are a lot of older females to look up to these days. Here's to Hillary, first female president in 2016...
Wow, she was really good looking when she was young:
Man! What an fierce lesbian! She's 64 years old for god sake!
I am loving this. To all the people who say a woman in her 60s is too old to be president, I say, look at this. Diana is a great role model for women of all ages.
I'm glad that she finally fulfilled her dream after so many tries, goes to show you that aging can't stop determination.
Diana Nyad should not run for president.
I find the determination and the physical achievement remarkable; but who the fuck wants to swim from Florida to Cuba?
Still, I'm glad she finally did it since she had tried so many times and had failed so many times.
A dyke conquers the Straights . . . of Florida!

Wrong direction, fool.
I wish there were more out and proud celebrities!
She was very handsome when she was younger.
congratulations girl! I'm glad you achieved your dream.

Congrats to her. But she looks like every mean old nun in my catholic childhood.

Different goals mean different things to different people.
Girl, you come back here and tell us once you've drank an entire case of beer in one night, or finally got to a whole bakers' dozen of strangers unloading in your ass, and we'll celebrate your lifelong goals, too!
A Tweet from Hillary Clinton that's original (Obama's was first, but generic):
[quote]Flying to 112 countries is a lot until you consider swimming between 2. Feels like I swim with sharks - but you actually did it! Congrats!
She did it!
How come she wasn't eaten by sharks?
Because her pussy stank.
R54- they had this device that gave off some sort of signal that kept sharks away. They explained it on CNN last night. They also had divers looking out for problems.
Damn, she's 64? Congrats to Diana! You make all us fitness dykes proud!
