Happy Tuesday.

Here's a recap of what happened overnight in Sochi and preview of the packed morning schedule.

WHILE YOU SLEPT

American Devin Logan earned a surprising silver medal in the women's freestyle skiing slopestyle event.

Logan, a 20-year-old who's from Oceanside, scored 85.40 on her first run, then watched as only one skier beat that number: Canada's Dara Howell.

Keri Herman, projected to be the United State's top medal contender, finished 10th.

And in the women's cross country sprint, Kikkan Randall, considered the United States' top medal, was knocked out in the quarterfinals.

Sophie Caldwell finished sixth, the best ever in the sport for an American woman.

BRIGHT AND EARLY

Early risers have a chance to track two early-morning events:

The women's 500-meter speed skating finals was scheduled to begin at 5:45, with former inline skater Heather Richardson as the top U.S. medal hope. She would be the first American woman to win the 500-meter long track since the great Bonnie Blair 20 years ago. The finals will be shown later today on NBCSN.

And at 7 a.m., the figure skating competition resumes with the pairs' short program. Russians Tatyana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov are the reigning world champs and heavy favorites. NBCSN will show the event live.

ON TAP THIS MORNING I: BRINK OF A BREAKTHROUGH

Erin Hamlin is in third place entering the final day of competition in the women's luge singles. No American man or woman has ever medaled in the luge singles. The finals will begin at 8 a.m. (approximately), but there is no live broadcast.

ON TAP THIS MORNING II: Shaun White goes for gold

In a nutshell: White is attempting to become the first American man to win the same event at three consecutive Winter Olympics. White's competition includes Switzerland's Iouri Podladtchikov, better known as "I-Pod." The festivities get underway at 9:30 a.m. (approximately), but don't look for a live broadcast — this is a primetime event all the way.

ON TAP THIS MORNING III: a soaring start

Women's ski jumping makes its Olympic debut. The American to watch is 19-year-old Sarah Hendrickson of Park City, Utah. All of 95 pounds (on a 5-foot-4 frame), Hendrickson tore ligaments in her knee in August but was named to the U.S anyhow — she's that good. The event will be shown live at 10:15 a.m. on NBCSN.
