Cuba Swimming to Florida
Australian swimmer Chloe McCardel puts on her goggles as she prepares to jump into the water and start her swim to Florida from Havana, Cuba, Wednesday, June 12, 2013. The Australian endurance athlete is hoping to become the first person to swim from Havana to Florida without a protective shark cage. McCardel says she expects to spend about 60 hours in the sea before reaching the Florida Keys, a little more than 100 miles to the northeast. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
