Internet Loves Shirtless Tongan Olympic Flag Bearer!

posted by Teri Ann -

No shirt, no shoes, no problem! The weather is below freezing in Pyeongchang, South Korea, this morning for the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, but things heated up fast when Tongan flag-bearer Pita Taufatofua arrived without his shirt on to melt hearts. Just as he did during the opening ceremonies for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the crowd cheered him on as his well-oiled upper body manhandled his country's red-and-white flag--an all-the-more-impressive feat this time around given the freezing cold. "Tonga! Immune to the cold," one Twitter user wrote, while another commented, "I salute you, Tonga." HuffPo notes that Taufatofua qualified for this Olympics in cross-country skiing; in Rio, he competed in taekwondo, but lost in the first round.
