Most nationalities in one sauna - Finland reclaims world record

Finland, Helsinki
November 15, 2019 at 12:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Guinness World Record for most nationalities simultaneously in one sauna was broken by sauna loving students of Haaga-Helia University, from 101 different countries, in Helsinki on Thursday.

"It's for fun but we also want to promote diversity, multiculturalism, team work, bringing us all together. Finland is the land of the sauna, so this is a great place, a great institution to support," said organiser Kevin Gore.

To break the record they had to gather together over 100 nationalities in the sauna, at the same time, at 60 degrees Celsius (140 Faranheit).

Finland reclaimed its title after losing out to China in March 2013, when people from 99 nationalities crammed into a Beijing sauna, beating the record of 76 different countries in a sauna also set by Finnish students of Haaga-Helia University in 2009.
