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.
This is Peruvian skateboarder Angelo Caro Narvaez. Just figured that if we're all going to see the poor guy nutshot himself in the Olympics, we should be able to know his name and wish him well. pic.twitter.com/ghHmtz0HOO

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.
:boom: That's gotta :scream:

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.

Yuto Horigome skated as a kid at the Ariake Urban Sports Park.
Now, he is the first gold medalist in Olympic Skateboarding history.
What a day for Japan. #Tokyo2020 #skateboarding pic.twitter.com/aaI8rsLMTS
