Meet Pita Taufatofua, the Tonga Flag Bearer the Internet is Going Crazy About

Olympic flag bearer Pita Taufatofua made an epic entrance during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony on Friday night (August 5) at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 32-year-old taekwondo competitor went shirtless as he led the Olympic team from Tonga into the stadium and the Internet totally took notice.

Not only was Pita showing off his incredibly ripped abs, it was also pretty clear that his entire body had been oiled up!

You can check out Pita in action when he competes in the Men’s Taekwondo event on Saturday, August 20.

Until then, enjoy some more photos of him from the Opening Ceremony…

    Yeah but if men were openly drooling over a woman like that, it would be objectifying her and also sexist.

    I guess «internet is going crazy» referring to gay porn forums that author of this bs news usually visits.

  • Gina

    But men do openly drool over women.

  • Arx

    Yet here you are. Are you a gay man?

  • John Dow

    Nope.

  • Brink

    I heard that women throughout the land filled their knickers with panty pudding over this trick. Now I get why all those condoms were passed out to the athletes.

  • RationalistFaith

    Men don’t bitch about every single thing that happens to them. Women… it’s deafening.

  • Gina

    You mean the way that you’re bitching now? Trust me honey, the privileged male has significantly less to “bitch” about.
