DNA Magazine - - CONTENT -

This man knows how to make an en­trance!

At the 2016 Sum­mer Olympics in Rio, as flag bearer for Tonga in the open­ing cer­e­mony, he ca­su­ally strolled out wear­ing the tra­di­tional grass skirt, the ta’ovala, his shirt­less torso lib­er­ally oiled.

With an in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence of about 3.6 bil­lion, his sexy physique and model good-looks stole the show.

Fast for­ward to the 2018 Win­ter Olympics in Pyeong Chang where, de­spite below-zero tem­per­a­tures, he did it again!

Pita, who lives in Bris­bane but was raised in Tonga, has com­peted in taek­wondo and cross-coun­try ski­ing for Tonga – a na­tion fa­mous for its win­ter Olympians.
