Canadian Olympian Kelsey Mitchell Pulls Off A Hilarious Airport Security Prank

A Canadian Olympian pulled off a golden moment when leaving Tokyo Airport and thankfully the security workers had a sense a humour.

Track cyclist Kelsey Mitchell, who won gold in the women's individual cycling sprint, hid her medal under her T-shirt as she walked through the metal detectors at security.

As the alarms went off and security staff descended upon her, she pretended to pat herself down and then, with a huge smile on her face, she lifted her medal above her top to show staff what had caused the commotion.

Team Canada won 24 medals at the Tokyo Games, setting multiple records and producing their second biggest haul of medals at a Summer Olympic Games.

The Paralympic Games also began on Tuesday, August 24 and will finish on Sunday, September 5.

Team Canada's quest for gold medals doesn't stop with the Olympics — there are 128 Paralympic athletes also competing at the highest level in Tokyo and they're already making the country so proud.

Canada's first medal at the 2021 Paralympic Games came early on the morning of Wednesday, August 25, just a day after the competition's opening ceremony.
