This question emerged recently over beers & burritos with @VanMou and @AquaRob: How do we determine the oldest person to complete the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming?

If Joe or Jane Q. Swimmer completes the E.C., C.C., and MIMS at ages X, Y, and Z, is his/her "Triple Crown age":

If Joe or Jane Q. Swimmer completes the E.C., C.C., and MIMS at ages X, Y, and Z, is his/her "Triple Crown age":

- The maximum of {X, Y, Z} ?
- The minimum of {X, Y, Z} ?
- The average of {X, Y, Z} ?

Otherwise it'd have to be the age at which all three were completed

unless all 3 completed in 1 season; + 20 yrs (at least!)
