Bogging it up

A competitor takes part in the World Bog Snorkelling Championships held at Waen Rhydd Bog on Aug. 31 in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales. The sport of bog snorkeling began here in 1976 as a result of a conversation between friends in a nearby bar. Today, more than 200 people come out to participate.
