Yes,Bog Snorklling has returned to Wales and its messier than ever.

Well, it's a big day for a bank holiday in Wales....

The 26th world bog snorkeling championship was held Sunday in the United Kingdom.

With very few rules... bog snorkeling is more of an extremely unusual sport than an extreme one.

It's also extremely dirty.

Competitors... in various attire... swim down a sixty yard peat bog... which is a flooded trench.... fighting for the best time.

The rules make it against using conventional swimming strokes.

This year a record amount of competitors -- over 100 -- took part in the event.
