How does Diana Nyad inspire you?

I think beyond an older person swimming on the level of Diana Nyad, or achieving a milestone in sports, her never say die attitude of achieving a personal goal is admirable. I think a lot of people see themselves in her. How does she inspire you?

Live CNN feed:

update: btw, she just did it in her 5th and last attempt


I think it would be impossible to think of her achievement of swimming from Cuba to the Florida Keys as anything less amazing than when Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Atlantic. I can't think of any individual sports record or personal goal as amazing in my life.

Isn't there anybody that understands the concept of "Never give up" or the "...fifth try is a charm".

She doesn't inspire anyone. Why should she? It's something that has already been done many times. So, she did it without a shark tank. Big deal.

Big deal?! She doesn't inpire anyone?! seriously?! That is a ridiculous statement...you may not find her inspirational yourself but that is a pretty silly statement. I think thousands if not millions of people found her feat to be an amazing story of strength and perserverance...swimming from Cuba to Florida seems like a pretty big deal to me...I think it is an amazing feat...especially at her age...never give up on your goals and dreams
