Photo: Incredible three-way finish caps off men's ski cross race

Ski cross photo finish

The award for craziest finish in an Olympic event goes to the quarterfinals of men's ski cross.

Check out the photo of the finish that shows three skiers laying it all on the line for Olympic glory.

Apparently, Russia's Egor Korotkov, Sweden's Victor Oehling Norberg, and Finland's Jouni Pellinen each crashed on the final jump of the race, which explains why all three went tumbling toward the finish line.

Korotkov advanced from the group solely because he extended his arms in front of him as he crossed the threshold.
