Diana Nyad, most known for being a (very) long distance swimmer, has a net worth of $1.4 Million. Born in New York City in 1949, she has broken many world records for swimming. Some of her most memorable swimming escapades started in 1975 when, at 26 years old, she swam around the entire circumference of Manhattan Island (New York City). As a testament of her athletic ability, she swam from North Bimini Island all the way to the Juno Beach, Florida. She made it in 27 hours, breaking the world record for BOTH men and women. She has recently been in the news, as she has been attempting to swim from Cuba to Florida, despite being in her 60's. Just like the attempt in August of 2011, she didn't make it.. but she did manage to spend a fair amount of money attempting! The first trip cost over $500,000, but it did manage to get her back in the news so she could continue to make speaking engagements around the world. She charges from $10,000 to $15,000 to give her motivational speeches. She has also written several motivation books and been part of many other peoples books on sports and athleticism.
Diana Nyad (born August 22, 1949 in New York City, New York) is an American author, journalist, and long-distance swimmer noted for her world-record endurance championships.
Over two days in 1979, Nyad swam from Bimini to Florida, setting a distance record for non-stop swimming without a wetsuit that still stands today. She broke numerous world records, including the 45-year-old mark for circling Manhattan Island (7 hrs, 57 min) in 1975. She was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1986. Nyad was honored with her induction in the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2003.
She provides a weekly five-minute radio piece on sports for KCRW called The Score (heard during KCRW's broadcast of NPR's "All Things Considered"), as well as for the Marketplace radio program. She formerly hosted the public radio program "The Savvy Traveler."
Nyad graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Lake Forest College in 1973.
She told a reporter that today, in contrast to her youth, her drive is no longer propelled by attempts to work through the anger manifest from sexual abuse she suffered as a teenager.
On July 8, 2011, the U.S. gay sports website CompeteNetwork reported on her plans for the 2011 Cuba-to-Florida swim, writing that "(the) amazing Diana Nyad is a living legend in the swim world, and a role model for the GLBT community..." Nyad is openly lesbian.
In September 2011, Nyad announced that she would attempt the Cuba-to-Florida swim once again in 2012.
Nyad was born in New York City in August 1949 to stockbroker William Sneed and his wife Lucy Curtis. Her father died when she was three and her mother soon remarried Aristotle Nyad, a Greek land developer, who adopted Diana.
The family then moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she grew up and began swimming seriously in grade seven. She was enrolled at the elite Pine Crest School in the mid-1960s, swimming under the tutelage of Olympian (and Hall of Fame) coach Jack Nelson. Before graduating she won
