bode miller 2014 winter olympics knee injury Olympics 2014: Bode Miller injures knee, withdraws from slalom raceBode Miller‘s Olympic career may have ended with the bronze medal he earned in the super-G earlier in the 2014 Winter Olympics, as Yahoo Sports reports that Miller injured his left knee during his first giant slalom run Wednesday (Feb. 19) and has withdrawn from Saturday’s finals.

Miller tweaked his surgically repaired knee during the first slalom run and then continued on to the second run before officially announcing that he was withdrawing from the event. “It’s tough to have my last race look like this, but I feel really good about where I’m at,” says Miller. “You know, I came back strong. I really did a lot of work and I put in the time. It’s a positive feeling. I feel like I did my best.”

The 36-year-old, who is the most decorated men’s alpine skier in U.S. history, says he plans to compete in this year’s World Cup season, but chances are this was his last Olympic appearance. Miller will be 40 by the 2018 games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which is quite old for such a physically demanding sport.

Miller is a six-time Olympic medalist, earning gold in the super combined in Vancouver 2010.
