Date: 1/10/2005

Iain Hawkes was crowned with this dubious title of champion at one of Britain’s most bizarre sporting competitions. The 26 year old beat nearly 200 hardy souls at the 20th annual event in Llanwrtyd Wells Wales, by snorkelling a 55m–long trench in 1 minute 46 seconds.  However, a 70-year-old women spent five minutes ploughing through the mud for this year’s slowest time.
