Biography

Bode MILLER

Winner of six Olympic Alpine skiing medals, including one of each colour, the exceptional American Bode Miller remained at the top of his sport from the Salt Lake City Games in 2002 through to Sochi 2014, where, aged 36 years and five months, he took bronze in the super-G to become the oldest ever Alpine skier to win an Olympic medal.

An artist on the piste

Every ski fan agrees that Bode Miller was a cut above the rest. Always skiing on the edge, the American had a unique and spectacular style. His big jumps and apparent lack of co-ordination made him look unbalanced at every turn, but each time he would miraculously recover and increase his speed around the gate.

For the Americans, Miller’s arrival on the Alpine scene ended a two-decade wait for their next superstar, after the Mahre brothers (Steve and Phil) took the world by storm in 1983. His first World Cup wins in the slalom and super-G in 2002 hinted that he was a worthy successor. Growing up on a farm with no water or electricity, the Franconia native never felt the pressure to make history, and was guided simply by the pleasure of doing what he loved. Nonetheless, Miller was a consummate perfectionist who was always looking for the fastest line.

A multi-talented athlete

Miller is one of only a handful of skiers to have won World Cup events in every discipline, from slalom to downhill. His career was marked by some dramatic highs and lows. His best performances included two silver medals at the Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City in 2002, 32 World Cup victories and four World Championship titles.
