Katie Kramer heads to Spain for Strait of Gibraltar swim


See naplesnews.com

Katie Kramer, 21, will dive into the Strait of Gibraltar from Tarifa, Spain sometime between May 10 and May 16.

If she has it her way, the next time she touches land, she’ll be in Africa.

Kramer, a Naples High School swimming star and the daughter of Naples High School football coach Bill Kramer, is attempting to be the youngest American woman to swim the Strait of Gibraltar.

“I feel as prepared as I could be,” said Kramer, who booked her chance to swim the Strait of Gibraltar in October 2012. “It’s definitely going to be a physical challenge I’m a (Division 1) swimmer and the physical aspects shouldn’t be the hardest part, but mentally it’s going to be tough. A lot of people do it in groups of two to four. I’m doing it solo.”
