British-Australian World Champion Marathon swimmer and world record in open water swimming, Penny Palfrey, dives to swim towards the United States on from the Hemingway International Yacht Club. Palfrey will launch a historic attempt to swim across the shark-infested waters from Cuba to the United States. Palfrey, a 49-year-old mother of three and grandmother of two, is vying to become the first person to make the 103-mile (165-kilometer) swim across the Florida Straits without a shark cage. The journey is expected to take three days.
