Hats Off To Bode Miller

Body Miller finally had his 2014 moment during the super G.  The 36 year old alpine skier earned a bronze medal and a place in the history books as the oldest downhill skiier to ever medal in the Olympics.  Kjetil Jansrud won gold in the event.  American (and Dartmouth student) Andrew Weibrecht took silver.

Bode Miller has now earned six Olympic medals in his career -- putting him among the top U.S. Winter Olympians of all time.  Miller said of his quest for a Sochi medal, "Some days medals don't matter, and today was one of the ones where it does."
