Condoms are a pretty neat invention for safe sex.

But who knew they could also help you get a gold at the Olympics!

Recently, Australian Olympian Jessica Esther "Jess" Fox won her first Olympic gold medal in the women's C1 canoe slalom and bronze in the canoe slalom K1 final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Fox nabbed her first gold medal at the Games after years of heartbreak at the Olympics.

And the 27-year-old French-born, Australian world and Olympic champion slalom canoeist can thank a condom — of all the things — for helping her win the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

Before winning her first Olympic gold medal, the Australian had shared a video repairing the damaged nose of her kayak using a condom

In the video posted on her TikTok account, Fox showed "how kayakers use condoms".

In it, a person is first seen applying a carbon mixture to the damaged nose of her kayak and then using a condom over the nose to secure the mixture.

"It gives the carbon a smooth finish," Fox wrote in the video that has since gone viral.

She also shared a video showing her medals:
