Is it Hot in Here or is it Me?


ALeqM5hIiGjXo8B__pWbF2p924_w_6My_AFinland, known for it’s wife-carrying and ice-swimming competitions has, since 1999, held the World Sauna Championships wherein competitors are challenged to stay in a sauna heated to 230 degrees for as long as possible.

Drawing in 150 competitors from over 20 countries, the championship was taken this year by Finland’s own, Timo Kaukonen, who withstood the heat of the sauna for 3 minutes 46 seconds. The second place finisher, Ilkka Poeyhiae lost by 2 seconds. That HAS to burn his ass.

The initial idea for the event came when a group of men frightened other patrons at a Heinola swimming hall when they threw so much water on the sauna’s stove that it became piping hot.

“This is a wrong way to go to sauna, this is not about relaxing, this is competition,” Ossi Arvela, the head of the competition, told reporters.
