WATCH | Fabian Wilkens Solheim wins the decisive heat to clinch gold medal for Norway:
Solevaag stopped racing midway through his heat against Kristoffer Jakobsen when the Swede made a mistake and appeared to invade his course. The jury opted for a re-run and Solevaag won.
Solheim then won the decisive heat over Mattias Roenngren.
Canada finished seventh after losing to Switzerland in the quarterfinals. Canada's team featured brothers Erik and Jeffrey Read of Canmore, Alta., Cassidy Gray of Panorama, B.C., and Erin Mielzynski of Collingwood, Ont.
Sweden eliminated three-time champion Austria in the quarter-finals.
