Damn. Russians are so bad ass. I know a handful of Russians and 'Eastern Europeans' in real life, too. Their 'just do it' attitude is inspiring. Of course, this competition is kind of stupid. But inspiring, none the less.

There are times to "man up" and times to run away like a little girl. This was (B).

Wow. I hate having something hot burn my hand, let alone my entire body. That's just nasty, and dumb.

A pre-requisite, more likely.

230 degrees is not a sauna, its an oven.

Dude looks like the old lady in the bathtub in The Shining.

Like my mother used to say. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the sauna.

I think you are thinking of a whirlpool spa or maybe a steam room. Steam rooms are set low, but dry saunas are usually between 150 and 170 F.

Wait, the contest wasn't in a dry sauna? Are you sure? If it was a steam room then that is increadibly hot, but the Fins are way more into the dry sauna. I can't believe the fins would have a World Sauna Championship and not use a dry sauna.

The article by the guy who was actually in a competition said a squirt of water came out every 30 seconds onto some hot rocks. I think it was the same competition, only a different year. Does that keep it in the dry sauna category?

pouring or squirting water onto the rocks in a dry sauna is common.

At 110 deg C, water boils at atmospheric pressure. I'd call it a dry sauna.

We're talking F, not C and dryness has to do with humidity not temperture. It could be 1,000 degrees C and still not be dry. And the Antarctica can be 40 below zero and it's the dryest place on earth.

Read article. Finns talk degrees C, although it is conveniently converted to 230 F, for those innumerate in metric.

Dryness is basically defined by the dewpoint, which is not revealed to us. Given the squirting water, it could be as high as 110 C, but that would be fatal, . . ., oh wait.

However, if the volume of water is small, it might not create enough water vapor to achieve saturated vapor pressure.

If the air had been dry, no one would have been burned. And everyone would have lasted longer than ten minutes. So long as you can sweat, you can keep from overheating, and keep your skin from burning. People have spent time in even hotter temperatures than that without injury.

What they are doing in this "sport" is close to bathing in live steam.
