This Is One Ugly Photo Finish

Today's first ski cross quarterfinal heat featured a big crash just before the finish, taking out three skiers and allowing Switzerland's Armin Niederer to cross first. But only second place would join him in the semis—who could slide the fastest?

It went to Russian Egor Korotkov, in the yellow bib and farthest from the camera. Not pretty, but it'll do. (Both Niederer and Korotkov were eliminated in the semifinals.)

Here's another look at the finish.
