Not a lot of MIAC swimmers get a mention on SwimSwam, but this did the trick for Carleton Senior Alex Mathson:

Crazy, but I'm still not sure this is the craziest thing a Carleton men's team member has done. I think the list goes:
1. Andy Hardt going to masters practice at 5am to swim extra before morning practice started (not one time; at every opportunity)
2. Dave Cameron swimming the English channel (I think he's done two, and once attempted a double crossing)
3. This

Let me explain the choice of Andy Hardt at #1. This and the English channel swim are much more impressive feats, but they are just that: impressive feats. It's something you can take pride in having done. The masters practice thing was insane. Get more sleep and swim harder at practice instead. For me, that's max crazy.
