5 things that happened at the Olympics while you were sleeping


This whole live thing is fun, right?

NBC finally decided to air the Winter Olympics from PyeongChang live. The only down side is that means everything comes on television in the middle of the night.

So we kept an eye on things for you while you got some shuteye. Here are the five biggest things you missed.

1) USA’s 1st gold medal

Red Gerard won the United States’ first gold medal in PyeongChang by winning the slopestyle. Gerard is just 17 and is the youngest to win the event. The medal ceremony was held later Sunday.

The U.S. women’s hockey team rallied after allowing an early goal in the 1st period to beat Finland 3-1. They will continue group play on Thursday against the Olympic Athletes from Russia.

3) Women shine in figure skating

OARs Evgenia Medvedva set a new scoring record with her routine in the ladies’ short program on Sunday. She scored an 81.06, breaking her own world record.

The U.S.’ Bradie Tennell skated beautifully, as well. Watch her skate here.

4) Wardrobe malfunction!

The big moment was the near catastrophic wardrobe malfunction for Yura Min. Five seconds into her routine, the hook holding her costume together broke. More about that here.

5) It’s not how you start, but how you finish

Norway’s Simen Hegstad Krueger crashed at the beginning of the men’s 30 km skiathlon, creating a pileup on the course. However, he was able to recover and win the gold medal. Check out his comeback.
