Remember back in 2013 when a 64 year old women attempted for her fifth time to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage? That women is long distance swimmer/motivational speaker Diana Nyad and she's back in the news.

It's all surrounded by the Hillary email story. Diana was asked today about Hillary's email confirming her to be able to swim from Havana to Key West.

With a bit of tugging from Hillary to the treasury department. Within 24 hours Hillary emailed her back and Diana was set to attempt the 102 mile swim (164 km).

On the morning of August 31, 2013, Diana Nyad began her 102 mile swim with only a silicon mask, gloves, booties and a full body suit. Accompanied by a 35 person team, Diana reached the beaches of Florida at 1:55 EST on September 2, 2013.

Hillary is yet to apologize for using a private email address and server while at the State Department.
