For the swimmer who could not finish her swim, at age 63, Diana Nyad, I salute you.

Updated on August 22, 2012

I salute you Diana Nyad, you are indeed an inspiration

So people want to be negative, well not me.

Kudos to Diana Nyad, age "63".

I applaud your effort.

You gave your best.

Don't be disappointed in yourself,

give yourself a pat on the back.

You put your heart into it and

almost made it,

but you tried.

That is what matters.

I think with seeing your pictures,

today you might feel defeated,

but believe me, you are not a loser.

You are indeed a winner.

At age 63, you kind of tried to accomplish,

something that even some 20 and 30's year old can not do,

or are too lazy.

You set out something for yourself and tried,

so you are not a failure.

Let people call you crazy and such,

that doesn't matter,

you are a wonder woman at heart,

and indeed an inspiration.

So I salute you today,

a lady of value and strength.

    thank you and let's just show age is not a factor, if you have the eye of the tiger at any age, than you truly are a tiger :)

    Great hub and tribute to Diana Nyad. She is remarkable and should be nothing but proud of herself. Voted up!
