While the United States slept, things were busy on the other side of the globe. Here is our recap of everything Olympics you may have missed overnight.
*Thick fog covered Sochi, forcing officials to delay the men’s biathlon race and cancel seeding runs in men’s snowboard cross.
Team USA Alpine skier Ted Ligety shared a photo of the mist:
*A less-than-sensitive NBC interview with super-G bronze medalist Bode Miller, whose younger brother died last year of an apparent seizure, sparked Internet outrage after the Olympian broke down in tears. (To be fair, reporters have to ask the tough questions. And this questioner was a former Olympic skier – not a Pulitzer prize winner – who probably had a producer in her ear.) Watch it here.

Some announcers just don't know when to stop asking questions-why can't they leave Bodie Miller alone and let him deal with his emotions.— MIKE ERUZIONE (@MERUZIONE) February 17, 2014
NBC has NO shame. How many times do they need to make Bode Miller cry for his dead brother to promote their ratings.— Gypsy Queen Cafe (@thegypsytruck) February 17, 2014
Wow, the thing that interviewer just did to Bode Miller was SUPER disgusting. #Olympics2014— Linda Holmes (@nprmonkeysee) February 17, 2014
That reporter just did everything short of kick Bode Miller in the junk to try and get him to cry on TV. #Olympics2014— Matthew Schott (@matthew_schott) February 17, 2014
Clearly that reporter had the over on number of questions to make #Bode cry.— Bumpus Jones (@JFleur87) February 17, 2014
Bode Miller looks like he's about to cry. It's actually very moving. He's 36. It means something different to him.— Chuck Russell (@chuckrussell1) February 17, 2014
I never really believed bode when he always says it isn't about the medals but after watching him cry I believe him now #respect— Zach Mooney (@zachmooney11) February 17, 2014
I appreciate everyone sticking up for me. Please be gentle w christin cooper, it was crazy emotional and not all her fault. #heatofthemoment— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) February 17, 2014
My emotions were very raw, she asked the questions that every interviewer would have, pushing is part of it, she wasnt trying to cause pain.— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) February 17, 2014
