It was another busy night at the winter Olympics, as one American sporting hero found redemption.

Shaun White won his third career gold medal in the men's snowboarding halfpipe, recovering from a medal-less performance in Sochi in what might be the final Olympics of his great career.

The short program for pairs figure skating also took place, with Chinese duo Wenjing Sui and Cong Han currently in the lead.

What follows is a comprehensive live blog of the night's events. You can also get more information on NBCOlympics.com.

The pairs figure skating short program is taking place right now, and all eyes were on the team of Tae Ok Ryom and Ju Sik Kim, who made history by coming from their native North Korea to compete in the South. They received a very warm reception from the crowd, and are currently in third place.

For the United States, Alexa Scimeca Knierim's and Chris Kmierim's score of 65.55 wasn't stellar, but their performance was still special, especially on Valentine's Day.
