Brazil gymnast Arthur Zanetti does still rings high above Rio de Janeiro (video)


Brazil’s only Olympic medal-winning gymnast performs on his trademark apparatus high above Rio de Janeiro in an Adidas spot leading up to the 2016 Games.

Arthur Zanetti, who at London 2012 became Brazil’s first Olympic gymnastics medalist by winning gold on still rings, is seen performing on rings at Sugarloaf Mountain in the video.

Zanetti showed up around 4 a.m., and the video took four hours’ worth of shooting, according to Brazilian media.

Zanetti followed his Olympic title with World Championships gold in 2013 and silver in 2014.
