Tonga's flag bearer is first the breakout star of the Olympics
Usually the Olympic opening ceremony is a night of inexplicable dance and goofy, patriotic uniforms. And that was exactly how the Rio opening ceremony was unfolding until something amazing happened: Tonga's flag bearer entered the arena wearing a skirt and glistening with body oil, showing off his six-pack abs.
At that moment, Twitter had zero chill about expressing its adoration for the unexpected star of the show, Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, who will compete in taekwondo for his home country.
