Pita Nikolas Taufatofua.
The name slips off the tongue as though it’s covered in baby.
Pita is on Team Tonga at this year’s Olympics in Taekwondo, but so far it’s been his oiled up and hot entrance as the Tongan flag-bearer that’s peak our interest … among other things.
But Pita isn’t just about baby oil and big poles — see what I did there — he’s also about helping those less fortunate. The Australian-born — oh the list of jokes I could do about going down under is enedless — 32 -year-old has spent most of his “adult life working in homeless shelters with the underprivileged to show and teach people the power of self belief.”
I’m packing my grass skirt and my baby oil.
