The two-man bobsled competition finished its first day with a team taking the lead in an unexpected fashion.
The German team of Christian Poser and pilot Nico Walther started their second of four runs in third place. So, they got a little aggressive in a push to take the lead. The run resulted in the bobsled tipping onto its side just before the finish line. (Bobsleds have an average speed around 93 mph. NBC's broadcast clocked most bobsleds crossing 86 mph at the Olympic Sliding Center.)
Poser and Walther's helmeted heads poked out the top of the sled, exposed to the ice wall rushing past the sled. The broadcast cut to their concerned coaches and teammates whose expressions went quickly from elation to shock. It took a few moments, but, with a little help, Walther and Poser got out of the sled and were thankfully uninjured. (One later said in an interview he was more concerned for his grandmother watching at home.)
The unexpected part? Though they finished the race completely sideways, they'd taken over first place.
