Behold, the World Bog Snorkeling Championships


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
