Mr. Tonga Breaks the Internet at the Olympics Opening Ceremonies in Rio!

The Summer Olympic Games officially kicked off last night with the Opening Ceremonies in Rio with the Parade of Nations. I will admit that I'm not a huge fan of the Olympics. I enjoyed watching some of the competitions when they were in London a few years back and I absolutely loved the Closing Ceremonies that year. But I usually don't watch too much of the Olympics.

But my eyes are still sweating after watching Mr. Tonga (AKA Pita Nikolas Taufatofua) carry Tonga's national flag. He was all oiled-up and shirtless and now everyone is talking about this taekwondo athlete!

Check this out:

According to The Washington Post, Mr. Tonga is a 32-year-old athlete who was originally born in Australia. He works at homeless shelters and teaches "people the power of self belief."
