Day 13 of the 2014 Winter Olympics got off to a great start for France, with a full sweep of the medal podium in the second-ever men’s freestyle ski cross event. Jean Frederic Chapuis brought home the gold for France, while Arnaud Bovolenta claimed silver and Jonathan Midol earned himself the bronze.

It was an impressive performance by the French men’s freestyle ski team, but the entire event was full of wild twists and turns.

All you need to see in order to understand how unpredictable the event was is this crash at the finish line that led to a three-way photo finish:
