Brits And Americans Try Bog Snorkelling For The First Time
Not that kind of bog.
Britain is home to a wide range of weird, outrageous traditions. One of those is a sport known as bog snorkelling.
To deep-dive into this tradition, Ed from BuzzFeed UK took his (slightly unwilling) American pal, Amanda, to Wales, to compete head-to-head in an actual bog snorkelling race.
But hold up – what exactly are bogs, anyway?
So, now that we understand bogs, let's take a look into the sport of bog snorkelling itself.
Bog Snorkelling started in 1986, and there is a championship held every year in Wales.
The rules are that you have to swim two lengths of a 60-yard trench with a mask and a snorkel. The twist? You aren't allowed to do any recognisable swimming strokes.
After learning a few tips from bog snorkelling enthusiast, Jenny, Ed and Amanda decided to take the plunge for themselves.
