Australian teen becomes youngest swimmer to cross Ka’iwi Channel

A new record has been set for the youngest swimmer to swim the Ka’iwi Channel.

15-year-old Cameron Keith from Cairns, Australia completed the 26 mile swim from Molokai in 13 hours, 55 minutes.

He made it through the shore break at Sandy Beach Park and walked up onto the sand at around 4 p.m. On Tuesday afternoon.

Keith was born blind in his left eye, but he says he’s learned to overcome it, so much that he practically shrugs it off. He’s been a competitive swimmer for eight years, but left the pool behind for open water competition to feed his love for adventure.

The young Australian says he didn’t see any sharks, but he did get stung by lots of jellyfish.
