Katie Benoit (nee Kathrin Raymond) is a police officer in Colorado Springs who completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming with a 13 hour 13 minute crossing of the English Channel in 2012, a 10 hour 41 minute crossing of the Catalina Channel in 2010, a 8 hour 44 minute circumnavigation of Manhattan Island in 2010. She has also completed the 12.5-mile Swim Around Key West in Florida and the 10km Horsetooth Reservoir Swim in Colorado.

Heroism

In 2012, a massive hail storm flooded an intersection near the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Benoit selflessly entered the rising, freezing waters and helped rescue people from their flooding cars.
