Diana Nyad swam from Cuba to the United States on her fourth try. She was 64 years old when she accomplished this previously impossible-to-do feat.
Ms. Nyad has a “psyche list” of songs that she would hum in her head to keep her swimming through the pain. The Beatles’ TICKET TO RIDE was her favorite.
