Set the Alarm: Ligety goes for second gold in slalom

Of course you decided to stay in on Friday night. Why? Because you wanted to set your alarm and get up early for these Olympic events. Or, maybe you're planning on coming home after a night out and figure: "Hey, I might as well watch some Olympics before I get to bed."

Either way, here are the early-morning events to set your alarm for.

Cross country 30km mass start (3:30 a.m.)

American Kikkan Randall has been held without a medal so far in Sochi. The cross country 30km mass start is her last chance to get to the podium.

More likely result? Norwegian legend Marit Bjorgen will win her 10th Olympic medal.

Men's slalom first run (7:45 a.m.)

American Ted Ligety goes for his second gold in slalom and will need to have a quick finish in his first run to put himself in position. Although Ligety enters the competition as one of the favorites, he's up against worthy competition.

Austria's Marcel Hischer has a good shot at winning it, as does Norway's Henrik Kristoffersen.
