So Ed, how in the world did those two guys tie for 3rd in a race that was electronic timed to the tenth of a second? I saw them duking it out going up the final hill into the stadium and they weren't holding anything back!
They came across the line together. One guy had his hand on the others back, so it was purposeful. We looked at the video. Ollie was pissed at them, as I think it made his awards more complicated.
Ha, I suppose it would. So either the side-by-side sprint up the last hill was just for show or else they got to the top and neither having gained an advantage by that point declared a truce. The funny thing at the time was that dozens of spectators were ALL screaming cheers for "Pat!" and nobody for the other guy.
