He's Back! Pita Taufatofua Gets Oiled Up AGAIN For Winter Games Opener
Feb 10, 2018, 02:08
Nearly every athlete, that is: Pita Taufatofua, the flag-bearer from Tongawho went viral during the 2016 Summer Olympics for arriving in Rio positively glistening with body oil, made a gold medal-worthy return to the Games by opting once again to cover himself in his trusty body oil instead of, you know, the warmest sweater he could find.
One person not in the stands was Aussie-born Princess Mary's husband Frederick who left the Winter Olympics earlier on Friday to be by his ill father's bedside. He is Tonga's sole athlete at the 2018 Olympics.
Pita Taufatofua will represent Tonga at the 2018 Pyeonchang Winter Olympics. "We had to mimic being on snow while not being on snow", he said.
"It still feels quite unusual actually being here because it took me 20 years to get to Rio, (and) just one year to get here", the former youth worker toldReuters at the Pyeongchang athletes' village on February 8.
"So we thought that if we could get to where they had blocked off the road, leave the vehicle there and then hike, we could hike 20 kilometers through this blizzard to get to this race, it was our last chance". "And so we end up driving for two days trying to get through this blizzard".
He announced in December 2016 he was taking a break from taekwondo in an attempt to qualify for the Winter Games, despite having no prior ski-ing experience. "It was the best snow race I have ever done".
Pita Taufatofua is going to keep making dreams come true, shirtless whenever possible.
