‘SUPER SOUL SUNDAY’ FEATURES OPRAH & SWIMMING CHAMPION DIANA NYAD
IN PART TWO OF AN ALL-NEW INTERVIEW THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13
ON OWN: OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK

Chicago, IL– Oprah Winfrey’s conversation continues with world champion marathon swimmer, Diana Nyad, in part two of an all-new “Super Soul Sunday” interview airing this Sunday, October 13 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

The interview features moments from Diana Nyad’s 48-hour “Swim for Relief” celebrity event to support Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts, which takes place today, Tuesday, October 8 to Thursday, October 10 in New York City.

In this very special one-in-one interview with Oprah, find how Nyad—who, at 64, captivated the world when, on her fifth and final attempt, she became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida, without a shark cage—worked through the pain and suffering to fulfill a dream of a lifetime.  Nyad talks about swimming from a spiritual perspective, illuminating the lessons she realized from dreaming big, achieving the impossible and finding joy in the face of skepticism.

    This interview was fascinating. I never get tired of hearing Diana Nyad speak. The interview went beyond the usual , sometimes repetitive swimming questions, and gave deeper insight into who Diana is as a person. Oprah is a great interviewer and Diana is candid . Good combination. I especially enjoyed the conversation about spirituality. Diana talked openly about her lack of traditional religious views in a way that was enlightening and not in the least bit offensive to me as a believer.
