By Coach Lee Zohlman

But a few remain and the tenacious Diana Nyad on her fifth arduous attempt in 35 years has swam herself into the record books. She swam alone and without the security and safety of a shark cage from communist Cuba to the welcome arms of thousands of elated fans in the good old US.

How did she do it? What kind of team does it take to make this happen? You won't believe it until your read it. We sat down with Roger McVeigh, a Zenner and one of Diana's support crew to hear how it was done.
