The Gold Standard: Topless Tonga Guy makes his triumphant return

It may not be possible to catch all the best moments in a single day of the Olympic Games, but we’re going to try. Every day, we’ll award medals for standout achievements at (and around) Pyeongchang 2018 and achievements that may or may not be recognized on the podium.

With the Pyeongchang Olympics Games officially kicking off with Day 0, we look at some of the top moments from the Opening Ceremony.

Gold medal for making the best Opening Ceremony return

Remember that dreamy, ripped, shirtless, oiled-up Tonga flag-bearer from the Rio 2016 Olympics’ Opening Ceremonies?

Well, he’s back.

Despite -3 C weather, Pita Taufatofua made a triumphant return to the Olympic spotlight, no shirt, oiled up and everything.
