Tongan flag bearer once again marches at Opening Ceremony shirtless

Tongan flagbearer goes shirtless again for opening ceremony in freezing temps

He was wearing just a necklace and traditional ta'ovala, a Tongan mat, over his muscled, oiled body.

"I won't freeze", Taufatofua said ahead of the ceremony. We sailed across the Pacific.

In 2016, the athlete competed in taekwondo.

In an earlier post, Taufatofua joked: "My goal is to rest as long as possible while trying not to ski into a tree".

Why did he choose cross-country skiing to begin with? But as it turns out, he still had sights set on Olympic glory, and he qualifying for the cross-country skiing event.

Tonga Man is even considering learning a third sport in time for the next summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.

The 2018 Winter Games in South Korea kicked off on Friday, with a dazzling opening ceremony that sent a powerful message of harmony and unity.

He also crowdfunded his journey and qualified on the last day of the Olympic trials, Teen Vogue reported. I want a new challenge.

According to his personal website, the Australian-born 34-year-old spent "his whole adult life working in homeless shelters with the underprivileged to show and teach people the power of self belief". He has since lost 15kg of fat and muscle, although he still weighs at least 20kg more than his competitors. One of the more remembered moments was the selfie that South Korean gymnast Lee Eun-ju took with North Korean gymnast Hong Un-jon.

But there's something nearly magical about witnessing a person accomplish his or her lifelong dream, especially one that requires years of sacrifice and the kind of brutally hard physical work that I can hardly fathom.

The world may be competing against one another for the 2018 Olympic Games, but everyone is united in one common cause: Pita Taufatofua must be protected at all costs.
