Marin Čilić Climbs onto Christ

By 21 February 2018

World’s number 3 player is in Rio de Janeiro this week to play the ATP tournament, set to play in the second round against the winner of the Gael Monfils and Horacio Zeballos match

Looking to fill his waiting time, the organizers helped Čilić climb one of the symbols of Rio, the Christ the Redeemer statue at 709 meters above sea level, 39.6 meters tall and 700 tons in weight, as Sportske Novosti reported on February 21, 2018.

“Definitely an amazing feeling. My legs are still shaking, and heart beating like crazy. It is very windy and not easy at all. Congratulations to the camera man for hauling the camera all the way to the top. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I am quite religious,” said Marin Čilić.
