Bode Miller Wins Gold. Yes, finally, he got his first Olympic Gold medal in the Men's Super Combined. It can be remembered that Miller came out as a big disappointment four years ago at the Turin Games. Here is a part of a report about his win from Huffington Post:

WHISTLER, British Columbia — Bode Miller finally won his elusive gold medal, using a blistering slalom run Sunday to complete one of the most unlikely Olympic comebacks ever.

Four years after bombing out amid lofty expectations at the Turin Games and a year after practically walking away from the sport, Miller won the super-combined for his third medal in as many events at Vancouver.

Seventh after the morning downhill run, Miller skied the third-fastest afternoon slalom leg for a two-run time of 2 minutes, 44.92 seconds – a comfortable 0.33 ahead of Ivica Kostelic of Croatia, who matched his silver medal at Turin. Silvan Zurbriggen of Switzerland claimed bronze, 0.40 back.

For a guy who has insisted that medals aren't important, this one clearly was special.

"The way I executed, the way I skied, is something I'll be proud of the rest of my life," Miller said.
