The Olympics are a competition. But for Kiribati’s David Katoatau, it’s more of a celebration.
After each lift, whether he succeeds or not, Katoatau revels in the moment’s excitement by throwing down some moves.
Katoatau relies on his combination of dancing and weightlifting to raise awareness for the rising sea levels that affect Kiribati and the world.
It’s no surprise he was a crowd favorite; he’s an Olympic level competitor and dancer.
