Seven Wonders of the Sporting World (Events)

We have discussed the Wonders of the Sporting World, which are all about stadiums and venues, although the experience of being there to watch sport in these stadiums is what makes it special. Hence the need for a Top-7 Wonders of the Sporting World - Sporting Events List.
