Scariest job in Sochi? Climbing the torch
SOCHI, Russia — For those with a fear of heights, it’s the Olympic job from hell: clambering up the giant cauldron to carry out maintenance work on the blazing centerpiece of the Sochi Games.
But suspended by ropes high above the coastal cluster of spectacular stadiums here, they must have a great view of all the fans milling about – and taking selfies – down below.
And if they ever make abseiling an Olympic sport, maybe these guys will one day be medal contenders.
Worst. Olympic job. Ever? Maybe the best ever if you can handle heights. I bet these guys have a good view. pic.twitter.com/4GEHCcqCsv
