Participating in the Olympics is a dream that people harbour for days and years. It takes a lot of practice, hard-work and dedication for an athlete to be able to participate in the Olympics and make their country proud. Alongside, athletes also get a huge amount of recognition when they represent their country at the Olympics. But Mark Roberts, 55, has devised an ingenious way of gaining popularity at the Olympics. How? Well, by stripping! At the ongoing Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang County, South Korea, Mark actually stripped and performed ballet on the ice with a monkey penis pouch protecting his modesty. Mark reportedly snuck onto the ice after the medal ceremony for the men’s 1,000m speed skating had finished in the Gangneung Oval on Friday.

The Metro reports that Mark was dressed in a pink tutu and a penis pouch with the words ‘Peace and Love’ scrawled across his bare chest. The ‘serial streaker’, as Mark is called, then triumphantly peeled off his tracksuit to reveal his true form underneath and perform an impromptu ballet routine. The grace does not last too long, as he slumps onto the floor. But not one to give up easily, Mark gets up and continues his jig a la a professional. Pictures and videos of this bizarre incident have been shared widely on social media, and people don’t know whether to laugh or cry! But it has surely amused many, as they cannot believe what they just saw. Also Read - Secret British Graffiti Artist Banksy's Stolen Mural Returned to France From Italian Farmhouse on Bastille Day

Interestingly, this is not the first time that Mark has done this. He has a history of grabbing attention at international sporting events. The Metro reports that the Liverpudlian has been a firm fixture at major events, and has Wimbledon, the Champions League final and the World Snooker Championships as just some of his naked conquests. He had also streaked in 1995 during Fred Talbot’s weather report. And in March 2010 he streaked across the show ring of Crufts wearing a penis pouch in the shape of a cat.
