Are you a good swimmer, check that a great swimmer. Could you make it across Lake Pontchartrain? Could you make it from Cuba to Florida? Someone is trying! This female swimmer Diana Nyad is swimming from Havana Cuba to Key West, Fla. Right now sheâ€™s about a third of the way and oh by the way she's 61. Her Facebook page say she's experiencing some shoulder problems and asthma, but is still doing well. She can stop briefly for nourishment, but can't touch the support boat. She did it before and failed when she was 28. It's expected to take 60 hours to cover the 103 miles from Cuba's capital to Key West. And this time, she's not using a shark cage. She's relying instead on an electrical field from equipment being towed by kayakers to keep the sharks at bay.
