Olympic Update: Shirtless Tongan Flag Bearer Sends Women Everywhere Into State Of Frenzy

Over the past few weeks I have heard a number of people mention that they’re not too fussed about the Olympics this year and to be honest, I am ashamed to say that I was in the same boat for awhile there. After seeing the Tongan Olympic flag bearer, I have definitely changed my tune however because OMG.

During Saturday’s opening ceremonies at the Rio Olympic Games, everything was going to plan until the oiled up, shirtless Tongan flag bearer appeared and BAM, every woman in the world went into a state of frenzy.

So who is this very attractive and very oily man? His name is Pita Taufatofua, a 32-year-old hottie competing in taekwondo at the games. As Tonga’s first ever Olympian to compete in taekwondo, Taufatofua self-funded his way to Rio and is on a mission to “represent Tonga and the Pacific to show to the world that even the smallest voice needs to be heard and that it’s not about the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog!” Yasss!

Born in Australia, but growing up in Tonga, Taufatofua apparently spends a lot of time in Brisbane and has spent “his whole adult life working in homeless shelters with the underprivileged to show and teach people the power of self belief.” Um yes, please marry me now.


Also, he really likes being shirtless, so yeah, I’m just gonna leave this right here.
