This annual event has taken place in Heinola, Finland since 1999 and attracts competitors from around the world (twenty countries were represented at this year’s event, which started on August 6). Entrants must assume all risks, so they have to fill and sign a form that states that they will not sue the organizers of the event in case of an accident. The championship starts with the preliminary rounds, with competitors eliminated, until six of them get to the final, where they have to show their strength and endurance in a period of time to decide who will be the winner. The winner is the last person to remain in the sauna and then get out of there with no external help. Finland tends to dominate. Surprise, surprise.
