Jungfrau Sports Event During Swiss Vacation

A sports event in Jungfrau at the top of Europe?  That can't be right!  But it is!  An event that happens once every two years to promote a sport.  The past events have promoted sports like Cricket, Tennis and Tight-rope walking.  Imagine tight-rope walking at 11,333 feet above sea level.  Or imagine watching Roger Federer play tennis in the middle of snowy Jungfrau.  These are incredibly rare events.  Read about Raven's experience of attending such an event promoting basketball and a chance meeting with Tony Parker, at the top of Europe.
