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.
