Seen in a professor's web page biography

He learned how to swim when he was a junior by throwing himself into the school pool. His instructor could not give him a score in a swimming course he later took because his time of 100-meter breaststroke is too slow to be in the grading card. He eventually managed to pass the swimming course with a C (70/100) by running 1500 meters in 5 minutes 21 seconds.

So, basically, the guy can hardly swim 100 meters without drowning, but he could run a mile faster than almost anyone you know.
