The first London Marathon was declared a dead heat between Dick Beardsley and Inge Simonson, 2:11:48.

They were not holding hands as the story goes. In his book Beardsley says that each of them was trying to break the other, but couldn't. Their hands touched during the lunge at the finish line.

Vancouver 50K cross country ski gold medal race:



Rank Bib Name Country Time Deficit
1 Petter Northug Norway 2:05:35.5 +0.0
6 Axel Teichmann Germany 2:05:35.8 +0.3
18 Johan Olsson Sweden 2:05:36.5 +1.0



This is about my favorite event in the winter olympics (who says they don't have distance running?) because EVERY TIME it comes down to a crazy finish like this.
