Staff WriterFor the first time in Olympic alpine skiing history, two countries will share the gold. Slovenia’s Tina Maze and Switzerland’s Dominique Gisin both clocked in at 1 minute and 41.57 seconds for the women’s downhill race. Maze went after Gisin, and after seeing that the girls were tied for the lead threw her goggles up in the air in victory. The girls were ecstatic while holding hands at the podium. “I think the tie is not that bad,” said Maze. “It is even more interesting. It is better to have two on the podium. Two happy faces.” For Maze the win was sweet in more than one way - she is the first Slovenian to win gold in the winter Olympics, and her win gave Slovenia their fourth medal in Sochi, the most in the country’s history. "This doesn't feel real," said Maze. "I will have to see my team to get myself together and realize how much this means to us."
