Dozens of swimmers braved murky waters on Sunday as an 18-year-old woman smashed the world record time for bog snorkelling. The 28th World Bog Snorkelling Championships saw 130 competitors from around the world, some in fancy dress, descend on Waen Rhydd Bog on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, mid Wales.

The current World Champion is 18 year old Dineka Maguire from Northern Ireland in a time of 1 minute 23.13 seconds, which is a new World Record beating the previous record time held by Andrew Holmes of 1 minute 24.22 seconds by over a second.
