Everybody liked having shirtless Tonga Olympics flag bearer back.
Needless to state, everybody was more than pleased to have him back at the Olympics leading the way for Tonga.
Taufatofua wasnt alone going shirtless this year as Vanuatus flag bearer, Rillio Rii, also brought his nations flag while oiled up and shirtless.

In what has actually become our preferred Olympics custom, the shirtless Tonga flag bearer was back and all of us liked it.
In the last few years there have actually been a few signs to represent the arrival of the Olympic Games. Theres the renowned ring logo, the hallowed and storied Olympic Torch, and an oiled up shirtless Tongan waving his coutnrys flag with pride.
Taufatofua initially went viral back at the 2016 Rio Olympics when we were initially presented to him as he proudly strutted the Olympic Stadium covered in oil.
Yes, all 3 of these things fit.
For the 3rd straight Olympic Games, Pita Taufatofua was back as Tongas flag bearer and he didnt fail to dissatisfy. Taufatofua initially went viral back at the 2016 Rio Olympics when we were first presented to him as he proudly strutted the Olympic Stadium covered in oil. He made another look at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics and has actually not gone for the trifecta in Tokyo.
All three times, Taufatofua competed as an athlete in among the events at the Games. In Rio he connected for 11th in heavyweight Taekwondo, he completed in Cross Country Skiing and freestyle in PyeongChang and is as soon as again competing in Taekwondo in Tokyo.
He also should have another gold medal for being a heading star at the opening ceremony.
