Canada and Germany shared the two-man bobsleigh Winter Olympic gold medal as a remarkable race in Pyeongchang finished as a dead heat. "At first I thought that we won outright, and then these guys jumped over and they were super-excited. I was really happy that we could get it done in her honour".

"We saw he was one-hundredth in front, two-hundredths in front, three-hundredths in front", Friedrich said. The Canadians shared gold with Italy in 1998, with Pierre Lueders driving that sled for Canada.

Justin Kripps and Francesco Friedrich were both jumping for joy after the closest bobsled race in Olympic history. "It was a insane race", said 28-year-old Margis.

This latest gold brings Canada to a medal count of six golds, five silvers, and six bronzes so far.

It is the first Olympic medal for Kripps, who appeared in his third straight Winter Games.
