This Guy Traveled All the Way to South Korea Just to Run Half-Naked Through the Winter Olympics
While athletes come from around the world to set records at the Winter Olympics, a British man named Mark Roberts set a record of his own yesterday at the Winter Games. Roberts, a man now known as the Olympic streaker, interrupted the men’s 1,000-meter speed skating event to run across the ice wearing nothing more than a pink tutu, a monkey face over his genitals and the words “Peace + Love” written on his hairy chest — truly a message for world unity.
Moments after crawling over the glass barricade onto the ice, Roberts shed his clothing and took a few steps before slipping and falling down.
According to Yahoo Sports, Roberts is a self-proclaimed “baredevil” who has streaked at 562 events in 22 different countries. Roberts told Yahoo Sports that he streaks because he loves feeling the energy of the cheering crowd. However, he added, he tries not to interrupt sports happening on field because, “I’m a professional.”
So that professional streaker spotted at the #Olympics is none other than Mark Roberts from the UK. He has streaked in 22 countries at 562 events including Super Bowls.

Sadly, it seems as if the arena wasn’t very full when Roberts pulled off his stunt — so much for the cheering crowd.
However, one home viewer caught a glimpse of Roberts falling on live TV. Let’s all enjoy it (below):
