Canada, Germany tie for gold medal in two-man bobsled

NBC Olympics

Time for Olympic bobsled events is measured to the hundredth of a second, but even that sometimes is not enough to prevent a tie.

On Monday, two countries earned a gold medal in the two-man bobsled event in PyeongChang. Canada’s team of Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz finished in a dead tie with Francesco Friedrich and Thorsten Margis of Germany. Both teams recorded a time of 3:16.86.

Believe it or not, this is the second time there has been a tie for gold in the two-man bobsled in the past 20 years. Canada was also involved in 1998.

Latvia took home the bronze and finished just .05 seconds behind Canada and Germany with a time of 3:16.91. Talk about tough competition.
