Full Name: Timo Kaukonen

Finland's Timo Kaukonen is a World Sauna Champion. That means he regularly pushes his body to the limits of heat endurance. For example, he's capable of withstanding 16 sweltering minutes in temperatures hot enough to boil water.
In Finland, most households have saunas, which are known for their health benefits. Timo grew up enjoying the ritual of a daily sauna. He would stay in the sweltering heat for longer periods of time than any of his friends or family members, who were amazed by his extraordinary staying power.
Daniel investigates Timo's skin to find out if he has a genetic difference that sets him apart.
