We are extremely proud to support Diana Nyad as she attempts this monumental feat. The International Swimming Hall of Fame inductee is attempting to swim 103 miles through the open ocean, from Cuba to Florida. She has set a date of Sunday, August 19th, at 7:00am to begin her swim.
There was a significant amount of time and energy dedicated to Diana’s swim. FINIS spent four months creating a suit that would allow her to avoid the painful stings of the box jellyfish that previously kept her from completing this journey.
Please visit Diana on her website, which she has titled the “Xtreme Dream”. http://diananyad.com/

We are all with you. Thank you for your competitive fire and positivity. It is encouraging for us all and great for the sport of swimming.
