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.

Jamie Anderson — the 23-year-old snowboarder from South Lake Tahoe, California — is the first Olympic gold medalist in women’s slopestyle. Anderson’s gold win is the second for Team USA: She joins Sage Kotsenburg, who dominated the men’s finals.

Things didn't go so well for U.S. favorite Bode Miller. The five-time Olympic medalist finished his men's downhill run at 2:06.75, mediocre by the day's standards, and placed eighth. Austria's Matthias Mayer won the gold at 2:06.23. Italy's Christof Innerhofer took silver, and Norway's Kjetil Jansrud finished with the bronze.
