Olympic gold medal tie

ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Reuters) - Switzerland's Dominique Gisin and Slovenia's Tina Maze tied for women's downhill gold on Wednesday in a thrilling first for Olympic Alpine skiing.
After a strength-sapping run of 2,713 meters over jumps and bumps down the gleaming Rosa Khutor slope, each swept across the finish line with exactly the same time of one minute, 41.57 seconds.
Timings to one thousandth of a second would surely have separated the two, but even then the difference would have amounted to little more than a pinch of snow on the mountainside.
