No more Sauna World Championships!

This weekend was again at Heinola, Finland a World Championship competition for Sauna. Yep, about sitting in a hot room…

Unfortunately the healthy and enjoyable hot room has been used a bit wrongly since one competitor died and another got injuries. Both of them had long experience from the competition, but still this kind of things should be avoided. Hence the competition organizers see no future for the competition.

Please remember to take sauna as a place to relax, refresh, clean yourself and enjoy – like I did this morning.  It is not a place for competitive things, never!
More about the accident from BBC site.

I'm a Finn that uses sauna a lot, and I've never been competing in sauna. It's dangerous, no doubt!
