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.

*Sharing is caring? In a rare Alpine skiing tie, Tina Maze of Slovenia (who also happens to be a pop star) and Dominique Gisin of Switzerland both won Olympic gold in the women's downhill. The pair’s time: 1 minute, 41.57 seconds. Lara Gut of Switzerland, who won the bronze, was 0.10 behind.
The last tie in Olympic skiing happened in men's super-G at the 1998 Nagano Games.

 

*South Korea's Lee Sang-hwa lived up to her stellar reputation in women's 500-meter speedskating and scored the gold. Her fastest time of 37.28 seconds broke the Olympic record.


*Goalie Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings will start for the U.S. against Slovakia – and potentially the rest of the Sochi Olympics men’s ice hockey tournament.


*In curling news: Norway and China remained undeafeated; the U.S. finally won a game. The Norwegian pants continued to be awesome.
