Tongan flag bearer once again marches at Opening Ceremony shirtless

Pita Taufatofua has reprised his role as Tonga's shirtless flagbearer with a fearless entrance at the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on Friday night.

Taufatofua only took up cross-country skiing past year, and left his Olympic qualifying late.

It's now 31-degrees in PyeongChang, South Korea, but don't tell that to Pita Taufatofua, 34.

The 34-year-old represented the tiny South Pacific nation in taekwondo, but was eliminated in his first bout. The current temperature in the resort during the Opening Ceremony is -2C (28F). He opted for the gruelling discipline of cross-country skiing because it was the "hardest" thing he could think of doing. The burn starts and then you hold the burn for an hour or more. He said, "I feel I have got unfinished business with taekwondo".
