Disappointment of the year: Justin Kripps and Francesco Friedrich sharing the 2-man bobsleigh Olympic gold

But why? Why fact that after four runs they both had exactly the same time is disappointing? I think it was the best two-man competition since SLC.

Why not have additional tiebreakers? Say, the best run wins, so Germany.

But the ones with best single run time had also worst single run time. So why they should be better? :p But seriously, I don't have problems with ties, I don't have problem with tie breakers, in both possibilities I would consider this competition for the best bobsleigh olympic runs from years. But rules are what they are. Maybe in future something will be changed?
