Here's a recap of what happened overnight in Sochi and a preview of the packed morning schedule.
WHILE YOU SLEPT
Vic Wild struck gold once again.
The American-born snowboarder, who married a Russian, gained Russian citizenship and competes for the Motherland, won the parallel slalom competition overnight.
The victory gives Wild a parallel slalom sweep: He won the giant earlier in the week.
The golds reportedly will result in a $250,000 reward for Wild, allowing him to move out of the 300-square foot apartment in Moscow he shares with his wife, Russian snowboarder Alena Zavarzina.
FOR EARLY RISERS
Plenty of pre-dawn action with the first run of the men's slalom, the speedskating team pursuit — the U.S. teams were eliminated Friday -- and the men's biathlon 4x7.5-km relay.
ON TAP THIS MORNING I: MEN'S SLALOM
It could be a quiet day for the Americans. Bode Miller is injured and done (perhaps for good), and this isn't Ted Ligety's best event. (He was in sixth place early in the first run.) Instead, look for Europeans to own the podium in the final alpine competition. The event continues at 8:15 a.m. with the second (medal) run, which will be held for NBC's prime-time broadcast.
ON TAP THIS MORNING II: Go for the ... bronze!
Finland and the United States didn't just lose in the hockey semifinals. They lost to their bitter rivals. How much passion and focus will the teams muster for the consolation prize a mere 24 hours after the gut-wrenching losses? The puck drops at 7 a.m., with a live broadcast on NBCSN.
ON TAP THIS MORNING III: Four-man bobsled
American Steven Holcomb is the reigning Olympic champion and just won bronze in the two-man event, ending a 62-year American medal drought. He has a strained calf but was able to participate in training runs for the four-man. His chief competition is Russian Alexander Zubkov, who won the two-man gold. The two-day competition begins this morning at 8:30 a.m. (No live TV.)
ON TAP THIS MORNING Iv: GALA EVENT
For figure skating junkies, here's one last chance to watch the best in action: The Gala exhibition features most of the best performers from the past two weeks, including U.S. Ice Dance gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White. (Russian legend Evgeni Plushenko won't participate because of an injury.). The exhibition will be shown at 9:30 a.m. on NBCSN and then again during the NBC prime-time broadcast.
