53 hours in Water
An American woman swims from Cuba to Florida. It is not easy. It is 110 miles (177 kilometres) from Cuba to Florida.
The woman's way is dangerous. There are sharks in the water. She has no protection.
She gets to Florida. It takes her 53 hours. She is very tired but she is happy. People welcome her. They are happy, too.
The woman is strong. She tells people that they can do anything.
Difficult words: dangerous (not safe), protection (something that makes you safe).
An American swimmer swam from Cuba to Florida. The 64-year-old woman swam for 53 hours non-stop.
It was dangerous not only because of the long distance. There were sharks in the waters, too. The woman had no protection. She had no shark cage and so she was the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without one.
After she got on the beach in Florida, people gave her a warm welcome. The woman tried to swim this distance before but she didn't succeed. But this time she did and people were as happy just as much as she was.
Difficult words: shark cage (cage that protects you from sharks), succeed (do something successfully).
American swimmer Diana Nyad has become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.
The 64-year-old swam non-stop for 53 hours through shark-infested waters. When she reached the shore, hundreds of well wishers were cheering.
"I have three messages. One is we should never, ever give up."
Diana first attempted the swim in 1978 and then again in 2011 and 2012 but didn't make it across. For those who knew her, though, there was no doubt she would finish what she started.
"We've always known that Diana could do it. We've always known that. I knew that in 1978. All you have to do is know her, to know that she could swim from Cuba to Florida, if the waters were glassy, if the weather was right, if there were no beasts."
Diana's 110-mile swim has set the record for the longest ocean swim without a shark cage or flippers.
Difficult words: shark-infested (with a lot of sharks), attempt (try), glassy (without any waves), beast (dangerous animal), flippers (rubber things you put on your feet to swim faster).
