I have seen many articles about weird and wonderful sports, however, this is the first time I have come across bog snorkelling. Apparently there is even a championship devoted to the sport. It was held last Monday in Wales and 170 people took part. The sport itself involves dressing up in a snorkel and flippers with fancy dress being optional. The competitors then have to swim 120 years in a peat bog. Some of the competitors took part wearing pyjamas and one with an ironing board strapped to his back. The record time for completing the event is 35 seconds.
