Australian Penny Palfrey attempted to swim from Cuba to the United States. After swimming for 40 hours and 3/4 of the distance to the finish, she was pulled from the water. The Strait of Florida is known for their aggressive marine life of sharks and jellyfish. She is to be applauded for her valiant and heroic effort. Penny is an incredible endurance athlete. She continues to inspire me and millions of people to reach for their dreams.
