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.
*U.S. Alpine superstar Ted Ligety became the first American skier to win a gold medal in men's giant slalom with a combined time of 2:45:29. He took a huge lead in the first run, speeding down the Rosa Khutor course in 1 minute, 21.08 seconds -- faster than everyone else by nearly a second. France's Steve Missillier and Alexis Pinturalut won silver and bronze.
Cue the "No Diggity" references:
I like the way you work it, Ted Ligety.

*Team USA's Bode Miller, who won the super-G bronze, said a knee injury may force him out of Saturday's slalom event, ending his Olympic run in Sochi.
*Austrian slalom skier Kathrin Zettel crashed into a gate -- and brought it with her down the course.
*The Sochi fog, delayer of many outdoor events this week, apparently cleared:
Just woke up to this outside my window! The storm has passed and looks like it left some snow up there :) pic.twitter.com/1oc0UdG8s5
