Muddy fun in the Irish Bog Snorkelling Championships

Contestants gathered in Northern Ireland to take part in the annual Irish Bog Snorkelling Championship. It got quite messy.
This weekend saw the annual Bog Snorkelling Championship in Northern Ireland, where this competitor was trying to keep her head above water.

Do you think they'll stay this clean for long? Competitors had to swim through 120 yards of muddy water using a mask, snorkel and flippers.
