Do your homeworks, or you'll be swimming down the bogs!

Who is the world bog snorkelling champion? As funny as it looks, this is not a daft question!
A firefighter from Bristol has won the world bog snorkelling championships. Iain Hawkes, originally from Llandrindod Wells, won the competition in Llanwrtyd Wells in Powys.

According to BBC online he said: "I have got to be good at something - I was useless on my GCSEs, never went to uni, but I am champion of the bog snorkelling."

Competitors have to swim two lengths of the 60-yard Waen Rhydd peat bog without using conventional swimming strokes.

This year's contest is the 20th annual event, and organisers dug a second trench in expectation of a record number of competitors.
