The first Olympic tie for gold in downhill skiing EVER

For the first time in recorded history, two people shared a gold medal.

Dominique Gisin of Switzerland and Tina Maze of Slovenia both got gold after finishing with a time of 1:47.57 in the downhill skiing event.

Due to the speed of the event, you rarely see the exact same tie, reports Business Insider. The only sport with a history of ties is speed skating, which then started tracking results to the thousandth of a second.

The bronze medalist, Lara Gut of Switzerland, came in a full tenth of a second slower than the two gold medalists. Both Gisin and Maze seemed elated to be sharing in the victory and held hands on the medal podium.
