Diana Nyad’s Record Breaking Swim

September 2nd, 2020

Today marks the seven year anniversary of the date Diana Nyad completed her record breaking 100.86 mile, 52 hr 54 min swim from Cuba to Key West, Fl. We played a small role in her journey by custom making a silicone mask to protect her from deadly box jellyfish stings during her swim. It’s hard to believe so much time has passed but we are still just as proud! Here are a few pics we snapped during the process and a poster she gifted us that hangs in our office.
