Shirtless Tongan’s goal: Don’t hit tree, finish and inspire

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) Tongan cross-country skier Pita Taufatofua joked that he has two immediate goals when he competes in his first Winter Olympic event on Friday don’t hit a tree and finish before they turn off the lights. The medal podium is far from the mind of the "shirtless" Tongan, who qualified for the cross-country event despite having taken up the sport less than a year ago and having spent less than 12 weeks of his life on snow.
