GIF and pic: Ski cross race ends with one hell of a three-way photo finish
Crazy sport, crazy finish...
Today's ski cross action at Sochi was pretty damn exciting. With four adrenaline junkies battling their way down a mountain while tackling many, many humps and jumps it is a great sport to watch anyway but one of the quarter-finals today delivered an absolute doozy of a finish.
A big crash on the final jump left Armin Niederer to glide home in first, while the other three scrambled for the second qualifying spot.
