American Bode Miller is an Olympic and world champion and two-time overall World Cup champion.
Known for his wild, reckless and free-spirited style on and off skis, Miller is a five-time Olympian, first appearing at the Olympic Winter Games Nagano 1998 and ending his Games journey at Sochi 2014 with a bronze medal in super-G.
Miller won a total of six Olympic medals, with his solitary gold coming at Edmonton 2010 when he was crowned super combined champion. He is one of five skiers who have won Olympic medals in four different events.
Miller made his Games debut in 1998 in Japan and earned his first medals four years later at Salt Lake City 2002, where he won silver in giant slalom and combined.
His next top-three finishes came at Vancouver 2010 when, as well as his combined gold, he won super-G silver and bronze in downhill.
A five-time World Championship medallist, Miller won four gold medals and is one of the most successful alpine skiers in American history. He won the overall World Cup twice, in 2005 and 2008 and has a career all-time 79 World Cup podium finishes with 33 victories.
Injuries and a sponsorship dispute has affected his career since 2015, but, despite constant speculation, Miller has not announced his retirement.
Born in New Hampshire, Miller lived in a cabin with no indoor plumbing or electricity on 450 acres of forested land near Cannon Mountain and was skiing by the age of three.
There's so many guys skiing so fast right now that you really have to be willing to take a lot of risks if you want to give yourself a chance to win. I'm prepared to do it; it's just a matter of if I can make it work.
