Pita Taufatofua was back at the Olympics on Friday holding the Tongan flag and causing social media to swoon once again.

It’s the third time Taufatofua has carried the flag for Tonga. He initially caused a stir at the 2016 Rio Games and again appeared at the 2018 Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang.

On Friday, Taufatofua was shirtless, oiled up and leading the way for his country. He walked alongside Malia Paseka, who is competing on the female side of the taekwondo event.

Taufatofua qualified for the 2020 Games in Tokyo in taekwondo. He will be competing in the men’s +80-kilogram category in the event. His first competition is set for Monday against Vladislav Larin of the Russian Olympic Committee.

He burst onto the scene during the Rio Olympics in 2016 when he showed off his greased and ripped body in front of a packed house. It was the first time the Olympics were held in a South American country. He was eliminated after his first bout in the competition.
