Bode Miller's Downhill Day: Olympic End Near for Five-Time Medalist

Bode Miller's Downhill Day: Olympic End Near for Five-Time Medalist

For Bode Miller, time isn’t on his side.

The most decorated male skier in U.S. history missed out on a medal in the men’s downhill event on Sunday despite appearing impressive in several pre-race training runs. Bode led the field in the first half of the race but faltered after hitting a gate. He finished a half-second off the leader. 

Austria’s Matthias Mayer claimed gold, Italy’s Christof Innerhfer won silver, and Kjetil Jansrud of Norway, medals leader at Sochi and at the twenty-one previous games combined, took bronze. Win, place, and show finished within a tenth of a second of one another.

The 2010 gold medalist labeled the Sochi course “treacherous” on Saturday after a teammate crashed. He added, “It can kill you.” It merely crushed him on Sunday. 

The thirty-six-year-old Miller, who won five medals at the Salt Lake City and Vancouver games, has four more chances to add to his medal collection at Sochi.
