The World Bog Snorkelling Championships return to Llanwrtyd Wells on Sunday, August 25, as one of the less traditional water sports that should be on your radar comes back to Wales for its 30th anniversary.

It was in 1989 that Stephen Madelin walked away from the Welsh midlands as the first men’s champion, while Clare Davies became the maiden women’s world champion nine years later.

Neil Rutter has won the past two men’s titles and could become the first diver to successfully win the competition three years straight since Phillip John in 2004:

Rutter is also hoping to break his own world record in the sport having set a new leading time of one minute, 18.81 seconds in 2018.

Elinor MacCormac won her first women’s world championship in a time of one minute, 48.46 seconds last year and could become just the second female athlete to defend the trophy.
