Great video of the entire sprint final. Andy Newell is in blue. Watch as Andy tries to sneak by Bjorn Lind on a left hand corner...

Says Newell on his blog: "In the final there was a lot of contact. A lot of skis and shoulders being thrown around. I tried to make a little bit of a sneaky pass on [Swede Bjorn] Lind early on after the first up hill and he gave me a full on stare down and pole whack. It’s pretty funny to watch on the video. We’re good friends so there were no hard feelings after the race.. we had a good laugh about it. "
