Why World Sauna Championships Suck
The World Sauna Championships were an annual endurance contest held in Heinola, Finland from 1999 to 2010. The championships began with preliminary rounds and ended in the finals, where the best six men and women would see who could sit in the sauna the longest. The starting temperature in the men's competition was 110 ºC (230 °F). Half a liter of water was poured on the stove every 30 seconds.
