In 1979, Nyad swam from the Bahamas to Florida, setting a distance
record for non-stop swimming without a wetsuit that still stands today.

for circling Manhattan Island (7 hrs, 57 min) in 1975. She was inducted
into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1986 and the International
Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003.
