Samuel Bode Miller (born October 12, 1977), best known as Bode Miller (pronounced Bo-dee, in IPA [boʊˈdiː]), is an American alpine skier. In 2005, he became the first American in 22 years to win the overall alpine skiing World Cup title, since Phil Mahre and Tamara McKinney in 1983. Earlier during his championship season, with a victory on November 28, 2004, he became only the fifth man to win World Cup races in all five disciplines: slalom, giant slalom, Super-G, downhill, and combined. As of 2007, Miller's total of 25 race victories on the World Cup circuit ranks second all-time among Americans behind Mahre. He is also a four-time World Champion in four different disciplines and has a pair of silver medals from the 2002 Winter Olympics. On May 12, 2007, Miller announced that he would be leaving the U.S. Ski Team.[1][2]. However, he will still compete for the USA in international competitions.

Biography

Born in Easton, New Hampshire, to Jo Kenney and Woody Miller, he grew up in Franconia, New Hampshire, a small community in the heart of New Hampshire's ski region. His family, including older sister Kyla, younger sister Wren (short for Genesis Wren Bungo Windrushing Turtleheart) and younger brother Chelone (full name Nathaniel Kinsman Ever Chelone Skan), lived on 450 acres (2 km²) of land in a forest, where his parents celebrated the Solstices, in a log cabin without electricity or indoor plumbing. He was homeschooled until the third grade, but after his parents divorced, he began attending public school. He applied for and got a scholarship to the Carrabassett Valley Academy, a training ground for skiers in Maine. His mother's parents owned and started the Tamarack Tennis Camp, and he has played tennis and soccer since childhood. Miller currently serves as Director of Skiing at Bretton Woods Mountain Resort in New Hampshire.[3] Easton is a town located in Grafton County, New Hampshire. ...

Miller first gained widespread recognition when he won two silver medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics in the Giant Slalom and Combined events, though he had been known to skiing fans since he burst onto the World Cup scene as an 18-year-old in 1996. Miller is known for his reckless style, often risking crashes to increase his chances of winning a given race; in his book, Bode: Go Fast, Be Good, Have Fun, Miller stated that his goal as a skier was not to win medals, but rather to ski "as fast as the natural universe will allow." Recently, Miller has also become famous for his reclusive (but outspoken) personality, and for his sundry attention-getting statements. Miller has historically fared well at the FIS World Ski Championships, winning a total of four gold medals and one silver medal.

Miller made history by winning at least one race in each of the four standard World Cup disciplines: Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super-G, and Downhill; by winning a slalom in Sestriere, Italy, on December 13, 2004, he joined Marc Girardelli of Luxembourg, who had been the first man to accomplish this feat in 1989.

2005/06 Season

Despite the hype surrounding Miller in the weeks prior to the 2006 Winter Olympics, every one of Miller's five medal bids in the Turin Games fell short: he finished a disappointing 5th in the Downhill, was disqualified Рwhile in first place at the time Рduring the second leg of the Combined event, received a DNF (Did Not Finish) in the Super G, tied for 6th in the Giant Slalom, and claimed another DNF after missing a gate in the Slalom. While his Olympic Alpine Skiing finishes were respectable by historical American standards, they disappointed expectations and were widely perceived as a personal and team failure.

Publicity, press and promotions

Miller's fame was partly spawned by his 2002 Winter Olympics slalom performance where, as a relatively unknown athlete, he hiked back up the course to finish after missing a gate – a rare, mostly symbolic act of dedication in a sport where hundredths of second often separate gold from bronze. The 2002 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XIX Olympic Winter Games, and with the theme slogan Light The Fire Within, were celebrated in 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. ...


Olympics coverage

Bodie Miller cites Dan Gui as one of his inspirations when he was young. On the program 60 Minutes, in January 2006, Miller described the act of skiing "wasted" and compared it to lawlessly driving while intoxicated.[1] He issued an apology for these comments less than a week after they aired.[2] During an interview with Rolling Stone later the same month, he stated his belief that Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds, and unspecified other athletes "knowingly" cheated by using performance enhancing drugs.[3] This article is about the CBS news magazine. ... January 2006 : ← - January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accuses European nations of trying to complete the Holocaust by creating a Jewish camp Israel in the Middle East. ... This article is about the magazine. ... Lance Armstrong (born Lance Edward Gunderson on September 18, 1971) is a retired American professional road racing cyclist. ... Barry Lamar Bonds (born July 24, 1964 in Riverside, California) is currently a left fielder for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. ...


After his disappointing 2006 Olympic performance, Miller summarized his experience by stating that his "quality of life is the priority," and repeated what had become his mantra throughout the Olympics: "I'm just trying to ski in a way that's exciting for me." In an interview shortly after his last race, he said that it had "been an awesome two weeks," and that he "got to party and socialize at an Olympic level." Bob Costas' primetime editorial, after an unapologetic Miller interview with Tom Brokaw, the conclusion was offered that Miller might finally get what he wanted: to be unceremoniously forgotten. Miller was consequently vilified in the American and international media; editorials focused on his attitude of simply not caring about the Olympics or about his performance. Robert Quinlan Costas (born March 22, 1952) is an American sportscaster, on the air for the NBC network since the early 1980s. ... Thomas John Brokaw (born February 6, 1940 in Webster, South Dakota) is a popular American television journalist, Previously working on regularly scheduled news documentaries for the NBC television network, and is the former NBC News anchorman and managing editor of the program NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. ...


Many perceived his "whatever" attitude a violation of the "Olympic Spirit," and in contrast to Miller's big-money deals with dedication-oriented sponsors like Nike which espouses the motto "Just Do It." Some of the responsibility for the excessive 2006 Olympic publicity rests with Nike's relentless advertising campaign, in which they urged consumers to "Join Bode." This prompted Washington Post sportswriter Sally Jenkins to ask, "Where? At the bar?" in response to his well-publicized nights on the town in Sestriere).[4] Some have argued that the blame for Miller's publicity crash-and-burn rests with himself, his PR people, and his manager, all of whom made Miller available for a veritable media blitz in the months leading up to the Olympics. Nike, Inc. ... ... Sestriere (French: Sestrières) is an alpine village in Italy, a [[comune of the Province of Turin, at 44°57′N 6°53′E, at 2035 m above sea-level, with 838 inhabitants (2003). ...

[The Olympic hype] is going to be a tough thing for me to manage. My actions are not always consistent. I'm super-mellow and laid back, but I'm always thinking and running 100,000 scenarios through my head. Sometimes I'm disciplined, but I like to be a total slacker, too. I party hard, but I train hard. People are going to try and figure me out and figure out my motivations, and it's going to be a circus.

Always a bit of a loose cannon, Miller frequently responds to questions from the press with, as Layden put it, "sermons that are often delivered without regard to consequences" (witness his 60 Minutes and Rolling Stone interviews), and the inner conflict in recent years between his sudden fame and wealth (his contract with Atomic Skis reportedly paid him a salary of seven figures) and his rustic, no-frills upbringing has only seemed to heighten his sense of recklessness. Atomic Austria Gmbh is a ski producer located in Altenmarkt, Salzburg, Austria. ...


Miller's autobiography, Bode: Go Fast, Be Good, Have Fun, co-written with his friend Jack McEnany, was published by Villard/Random House on October 18, 2005. Miller also became the first American alpine skier since Tommy Moe to endorse a video game when Bode Miller Alpine Racing was released for mobile phones on January 30, 2006, followed by Bode Miller Alpine Skiing for Playstation 2 and Windows on February 6.

A busy springtime for Bode Miller - News - Ski World Cup - ski2b.com (811 words)
Miller decision is not a total surprise even though the skier from Franconia always said in past years that he enjoyed training and racing with his colleagues from the national ski team.
It was seen as a consequence of Miller’s sometimes provocative behaviour during the Turin 2006 Olympics when he was seen drinking beer in bars and clubs late in the night in company of models.
It’s possible that Bode, who always said that he can decide at any time to pull out ski racing if he finds himself competing without pleasure, decided to choose this difficult solution to get back some momentum before retiring in 2008.
Bode Miller - MSN Encarta (394 words)
Bode Miller, born in 1977, United States ski racer, known for his unorthodox style and candid personality.
Bode (pronounced BO-dee) Miller was born near Easton, New Hampshire, in a rural cabin that lacked electricity or running water.
The outspoken Miller caused controversy in January 2006 when he admitted in a nationally televised interview that he had competed under the influence of alcohol in the past and refused to disavow the practice.
