Athlete: Stefan Lantschner nbsp; After waiting for the town to go to sleep and for the streets to empty, Stefan Lantschner climbed down a rope into the hole of the ancient bridge Ponte Pietra in Verona, Italy. Ponte Pietra is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige River and was completed in 100 B.C. Some tourists noticed the flashes coming from the bridge, but Stefan was lucky enough to climb up without getting caught by the police after a short session. -- Pignataro
