Swiss parliamentarians came out top in the annual race with their UK counterparts.

Henry Smith Swiss parliament members beat UK MPs in annual ski race

The annual competition between the two countries has been going on since 1956.

Jürg Stahl from the Swiss People’s Party and Andrea Gmür from the Christian Democrats came in first.

The highest ranking British MP was Henry Smith from the ruling Conservative Party – who came in at 22nd.

Although the parliamentarians had fun on the slopes in Davos, the event is also a chance for the MPs from both countries to network. This year it’s said the discussions all centered on Brexit.
