Eight-year-old Italian swims across Strait of Messina

ROME, July 27 (RIA Novosti) – An eight-year-old Italian boy has become the youngest person on record to swim across the Strait of Messina between southern Italy’s Calabria and Sicily, national media reported on Monday.
.
It took Rosolino Cannio 58 minutes to cross the narrowest part of the strait, measuring some 3.1 km (1.9 miles). He was accompanied by a boat with a guide who helped him to avoid dangerous currents.
.
Cannio said he now plans to cross the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Europe and Africa, and measures over 14 km (8.7 miles) at its narrowest point.
.
A few days ago Ilenia Andaloro, an 11-year old Italian, has claimed the children’s speed record for crossing the strait, swimming from Calabria to Sicily in 40 minutes.
