Finland reclaims sauna world record from China | AFP

Bathers from 101 different countries squeeze into a sauna in Helsinki, Finland, in a successful attempt to reclaim the world record from China, which won the title in 2013 with 99 different nationalities in one sauna. Under Guinness World Record rules, the bathers have to be in the sauna for a minimum of five minutes, at a minimum temperature of 60 degrees. Participants had to prove their nationality by showing the adjudicator a valid passport. The attempt, organised by students and staff at Haaga Helia University, was successful after organisers asked foreign embassies in Helsinki to help rally as many different nationalities as possible.
