Remember this shirtless athlete from the Rio Games in 2016? Pita Taufatofua is the only member of Tonga’s Olympic team. He competed in taekwondo in the Summer Olympics. Now he has returned to compete in the Winter Olympics in cross-country skiing. He’s only been train on snow for about a total of 10 weeks before the Olympics. You have to check out his story below in the 2nd video.
But don’t pay attention to his oiled body in 17 degree freezing cold temperatures.
