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…
