I had no idea this was a sport.

Half a litre of water was added to the stove inside the sauna every 30 seconds, and the last person remaining was the winner. There was no prize other than "some small things", he told the Associated Press.

Reminds me of the woman who died in the Sacramento contest where contestants had to drink the most water without using the bathroom.

I was expecting somebody to make that reference.

But it's not quite the same thing. If it were, that woman would probably be alive today.

Vlad, as did the promotors, had a pretty good idea of possible consequences, as opposed to the water drinkers.
