It’s not too cold for the shirtless Tongan flagbearer

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — The shirtless flagbearer from Tonga lived up to his name at the Pyeongchang opening ceremony.

Pita Taufatofua earned international fame when he showed up topless and covered in oil as Tonga’s flagbearer in Rio. After competing in 2016 in taekwondo, he set his sights on the 2018 Winter Olympics as a cross-country skier and is here as Tonga’s one-man Olympic team.

It was 28 degrees at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony, but there was Taufatofua, bare-chested and greased up just like he was in Brazil.
