PICS: The Shirtless Olympic Flag Bearer Takes The Spotlight
If you watched the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics, you would've totally noticed Pita Taufatofua. Better known as "the shrtless oiled up flag bearer with an amazing body." He debuted at the Olympics in Rio, and HE'S BACK LADIES!
Taufatofua, again carrying the Tongan flag, brought cheers from the crowd as he entered #shirtless and glistening with oil -- just as he did in the much warmer Rio opening ceremony. #Taufatofua competed in taekwondo at #Rio and lost in the first round, but gained an adoring international fan base for his Rio entrance wearing traditional Tongan costume. The experience moved him to pursue another crack at the #Olympics and he didn’t want to wait another four years. So, Taufatofua quit his job as a social worker and embarked upon intensive training as a cross-country skier – undeterred by the minor fact that he had never previously seen snow. #tonga
