One of the most successful alpine skiers in American history, New Hampshire's Bode Miller has captured the attention of the world with his incredible athletic balance and ability to produce jaw-dropping performances on skis. Raised in an electricity free home, the two-time World Cup overall champion, four-time World Champion and five-time Olympic medalist has risen to become one of the most prolific international athletes.
Miller opted to sit out the 2013 Audi FIS Alpine World Cup season, including the World Ski Championships, a strategic decision to ensure a healthy run for an historic fifth Olympic Winter Games. After successful surgery last spring for a microfracture in his left knee, which he originally injured in 2001, Miller expects his knee to be stronger than it has been in the last 10 years when he returns to competition.
Not one to sit idle, Miller stayed active cross training, much of the time with his wife, professional beach volleyball player Morgan Miller, who he married in October 2012.
I have said many times that motivation is a key trait for me when it comes to my racing – I am super motivated to do great things next year and I know 2014 will be my last Olympics. I have a chance to finish my competitive career on a really high note and I'm going to do everything I can to make that happen.
