Defending men's BMX Olympic champion Connor Fields looks set to miss out on a chance to defend his gold medal at Tokyo 2020.
The American fell heavily during the third and final run of the semi-final at Ariake Urban Sports Park.
Fields stayed down in evident pain, and was taken away on a stretcher.

We can confirm that Connor Fields is awake and awaiting further medical evaluation," the USA cycling team doctor said.
"We will share additional updates as they become available."
Action was earlier delayed after heavy rain left the BMX course sodden as the weather continue to wreak havoc on Tokyo 2020.
Play has also been suspended in the men's golf competition at Kasumigaseki Country Club and the women's rugby sevens at Tokyo Stadium.
