(CNN) Pita Taufatofua, the Tongan athlete exactly who became an instant Olympic icon whenever he emerged shiny and shirtless carrying his country’s flag throughout the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Rio de janeiro two years ago, has done it once again.
The 34-year-old is a bit of a Renaissance man, excelling not only in shirtlessness but in taekwondo; his Summer Olympics sport, and cross-country skiing, their Winter Olympics sport. He’s the only real Tongan at this year’s games, the first Tongan to show up in both the Winter and Summer Olympics
, and most definitely the only one to do this in such an, ahem, attention-getting style.
Less than so naked but getting right now there: The Bermudan delegation, who folded up to the ceremony wearing, what otherwise? Bermuda shorts.
If there was an Olympic medal for sticking it towards the weather (and there should be), they would all win.
