    tied for a lead

    Context (surfing competition)
    "Only Tom and I were left, tied for the lead."

    Does the phrase mean that
    a) both of them were equally good
    b) both were competing for the first place
    c) something else?

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: tied for a lead

    But the suggestion is that after some competition only two came out on top; they may then have to compete against each other to find the eventual winner.
