The Sauna World Championships
« on: August 13, 2009, 05:43:10 AM »
That's it!! WE fucking doing this in JPHIP WORLD TOUR FINLAND! :finland:

The Sauna World Championships :grin:


Let's sign up here: http://www.saunaheinola.com

The contest? The Sauna World Championships. Correctly pronounced sow-na, competitive sauna bathing originated in Heinola, Finland. This contest of stamina and total heat tolerance started back in 1999. Some local guys challenged one another to see how long they could stand the heat. Before you could say Ei Kiitos! (or no thanks) a contest was born. It is a test of Finnish strength and endurance, known as Sisu or foritude.

And big ups to native son Timo Kaukaun for ripping the gold on the strength of a 3 minute 46 second run at 270 degrees. At least he had the decency to throw on that Speedo! Most sauna guys roll in and set up shop on the upper bench wearing nothing but the back-hair sweater.

Competitive sauna nice sport! Why not just make a sport out of seeing who can hold their hand in boiling water the longest?! Or who can stick their head in an oven?! At least sauna conversations aren't awkward either. And no, 45 minutes in that box does not replace the cardio you never do. It's a place to hang when you'e hung over.

This is without a doubt the most ridiculous thread you have ever posted XD

Anyways it's true that Finns fucking love sauna. I think most older Finns were actually born in sauna :lol:
