about the video

American freestyle skiier Gus Kenworthy has joked that he would go topless to the 2022 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony if selected as his country’s flag bearer. “I actually don’t know how that Tongalese guy did that because it was freezing. We had our incredible Ralph Lauren apparel and it was heated and even with that I think it was still pretty cold, so I’ve got a lot of respect for that guy going out with nothing on. And sure I would happily do that but I think that there are more athletes and people to bear the flag, like this is Kelly Clark’s fifth Olympics. There’s so many people that have insane legacies and I’m definitely proud of what I’ve done, but I don’t know...I doubt that I’d be the flag bearer even if I make it to another Games. But I’ll take my shirt off if I get it (Video credit: Perform).”
