Speaker Bio

Diana Nyad

At the age of 64, in her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad successfully fulfilled her lifelong dream of completing the 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida on September 2, 2013. Upon completing her grueling 53 hour journey, a breathless Nyad told the world, “I have three messages. One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.”

Nyad is a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for NPR, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports and The New York Times. She has written three books and speaks French and Spanish fluently. In her presentation, Never, Ever Give Up, you will hear the unique, passionate story of her heroic adventure and the extraordinary life experiences that have served to carve her unwavering spirit.
