Dead heat leads to golden tie in bobsled

PYEONGCHANG – It was one of the closest sliding races in Olympic history, but when Canada’s Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz rocketed over the finish line in Monday’s two-man bobsled final, they knew they had secured gold.

Trouble was, Germany’s Francesco Friedrich and Thorsten Margis had also won the race.

Kripps had put together three good runs, consistently placing first or second, and he needed to pull out another one to secure his first Olympic gold medal.
