A comical scene emerged during the men's park skateboarding at the Tokyo Olympics when an Australian skater crashed headlong into a cameraman filming his run.

Australia's Kieran Woolley sent the cameraman tumbling backwards when he crashed after landing a trick during a preliminary round of the competition.

The 17-year-old landed after performing a rail grind and appeared to not see the man straight ahead of him. When he did notice, it was too late for Woolley and the cameraman, with the Australian barreling straight into him, knocking him to the floor and hit him in the chest.

Luckily for Woolley he stayed on his board and the trick was his last of the run, so he did not lose out because of the crash.

The Australian raised his hands to his helmet and quickly went to check on the cameraman, who soon sat up and showed a thumbs up to signal he was okay.

Ever the pro, the cameraman managed to keep filming as Woolley moved in to offer him a fist bump.

Despite the heavy crash, the skateboarder qualified for the final with a score of 82.69. He ultimately finished fifth in the final, but it was a good day for Australia regardless.

Keegan Palmer's score of 95.83 was unmatched by his opponents and the 18-year-old opened his mouth in disbelief as he won gold.

The medal also ensured Australia equaled its best ever gold medal count at an Olympics.

"It's an absolute honor to skate with my friends. I can't believe I'm here in Tokyo for the Olympics, skating with so many of my best friends from when I was little. And now we're all on the podium together, and it's an absolute honor.

"Everyone's been training for so long, missing out on the last year. I worked my ass off a long time for this, and I saw it through to the end. I'm just grateful for everyone that's been there for me, and I'd just like to say thank you," he said.
