New world record

This year’s Bog Snorkelling Triathlon, held in the Welsh town of Llanwrtyd Wells, was won in world record time by 30 year old Dan Bent from Richmond in Surrey.

The new record time was 2 hours 21 minutes and 5 seconds. The triathlon consists of a 7 and a half mile run, two lengths of the 135-foot long, six-foot deep bog and a 19 mile cycle ride across demanding, mountainous terrain.

His sister, Natalie, won the women’s event in a time of 3 hours 11 minutes 55 seconds.
