With the countdown clock ticking towards the start of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang (KOR), FIS Newsflash in collaboration with the Olympic Channel relives the most memorable moments from the past Games in Sochi (RUS).

In men’s ski cross in Sochi, France swept the podium. However, the highlight of the event came in the quarterfinals when Switzerland’s Armin Niederer won the heat after three other racers tumbled across the finish line following a crash on the final jump on the course. With only one spot left in the semi-finals, the race went to a photo finish. Russia's Egor Koroktov advanced over Sweden's Victor Oehling Norberg and Finland's Jouni Pellinen by half a body length.
