Bog snorkeling record set

A teenager has smashed the world bog snorkeling record, completing two lengths of a murky trench in 1 minute and 23.13 seconds. Dineka Maguire, 18, of Northern Ireland, beat 129 other competitors and shaved more than a second off the previous best time at the Waen Rhydd Bog near Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales.

"I couldn't believe her time," organizer Bob Greenough told the Belfast Telegraph. "... Because the competitors can only use dog paddle, it's all about leg power." [via Abroath]
