SOCHI, Russia - The men's cross-country sprint had a very dramatic finish.

Finnish anchor Sami Jauhojarvi changed lanes heading down the final stretch, impeding German skier Tim Tscharnke, causing him to crash and fall out of contention for a top-three spot.

Germany, who eventually finished in seventh place, protested the outcome, but to no avail. Sweden took home the bronze.
