Will it be fifth time lucky for Diana Nyad? The 64-year-old swimmer is once again attempting to cross from Cuba to Florida. Her last attempt in 2012 ended in failure, but if she succeeds she will shatter the world record distance for an open water swim.

She will be equipped with gloves and a mask and snorkel to protect against jellyfish, but will not use a shark cage.
