Well hello, Tonga!
World, meet Pita Taufatofua, the country’s Olympic flagbearer that caught everyone’s attention Friday night during the Parade of Nations when
he represented for Tonga proudly showed off his seriously oiled-up six pack for viewers around the globe to enjoy.
Twitter was ablaze with comments on the athlete’s entrance into Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, but Pita’s not just easy on the eyes.
When he’s not busy working on being the first-ever Tongan taekwondo athlete, he’s working as a youth counselor in his hometown. Additionally, Pita spends time modeling on the side.
