Behold, the World Bog Snorkeling Championships

0

They’ve got some crazy rules down there in Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales. “Competitors must swim (without the use of their arms) down the bog and back again. Only 1 length is required if they are in a fancy dress.” The world record is now 1 minute 24 seconds, from when Andrew Holmes this year swam the full back and forth lengths of a 180 ft (55m) trench. Now, I’m thinking … maybe if the fancy dress was something tight fitting, like a gimp or this Freddie Mercury outfit, then we could cut the distance in half and break that record ! Via simma.nu/no.
