The men's ski cross quarterfinals came down to the wire—more specifically, two armsthat resulted in one of the craziest finishes of the Sochi Olympics yet. 

Russia’s Egor Korotkov, Sweden’s Victor Oehling Norberg and Finland’s Jouni Pellinen all crashed on the final jump of the race, which forced them to fall across the finish line at the same time. 

After officials reviewed the photo finish, it was ruled that Korotkov advanced because his arms crossed the finish line first.

Below is the official photo finish.
