2014 Winter Olympics: Bode Miller Conversation
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Bode Miller will skip the last Alpine race at the Sochi Olympics, the slalom, after tweaking his surgically repaired left knee during Wednesday's giant slalom.
Miller was 26th in the opening GS leg, finishing in 1 minute, 23.64 seconds, more than 2½ seconds slower than leader Ted Ligety.
Given that he'll be 40 during the 2018 Winter Games, the GS might have been Miller's last Olympic race.

Bode Miller made his exit from the Olympics sooner than he had planned, but America's most dominant male skier surely didn't leave these Games empty-handed, writes Jim Caple. Story>
Miller owns a U.S.-record six Olympic Alpine medals, including a bronze in the super-G last weekend that made him the oldest ski racer to win a Winter Games medal. He said Wednesday that his knee bothered him after that race, and it's been swollen during the Sochi Olympics.
He missed all of last season while coming back from a knee operation.
The men's slalom is scheduled for Saturday, the last Alpine event of the Sochi Games.
