Skateboarder Angelo Caro Narvaez Suffers Eye-Watering Groin Accident At Tokyo Olympics

In one of the most painful moments of the Tokyo Olympics so far, Peruvian skateboarder Angelo Caro Narvaez suffered a truly eye-watering injury after an unfortunate crash. Are you ready for this?

The 21-year-old got off to the worst possible start in the preliminary round when he attempted to grind a rail.

Narvaez struggled to keep his balance as he tried to land on his board and couldn't keep himself upright before crashing into the opposite rail groin-first. This MUST have hurt.

As you can see in the footage above, the Peruvian lay on the floor in a hefty amount of pain before getting to his feet as judges awarded him a score of just 1.01 for the run.

Despite his poor start to proceedings, the talented Narvaez managed to bounce back and secure a fifth-place finish with a score of 32.87.

He might be waking up with a sore groin after this one.

Narvaez, the first Peruvian skateboarder to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, was a contender coming into the games but Japan's Yuto Horigome walked away with gold after a sublime competition.
