Oceans Away For Swimmer Diana Nyad

LOS ANGELES (CBSMiami) – World-record swimmer Diana Nyad is hanging up her goggles when it comes to swimming in saltwater.

Nyad told TMZSports that she’s officially retired from ocean swimming. “That was the dream,” she said.

Nyad was at Los Angeles International Airport Sunday when she was asked about her next potential long-distance swim. The 64-year old revealed she’s finished breaking records.

She said her future plans include building long pools for swimming.

Diana has been dominating the swim world for decades — and holds a ton of ocean swimming world records … including her insane swim from Havana, Cuba to Florida a few months ago.
