2014 Olympics: Bode Miller Sixth In Tricky Super Combined
ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Feb. 14) – Five-time Olympian Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) skied into sixth at a particularly tricky slalom race Friday during the super combined event of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
Wet snow and a challenging slalom course set bumped 10 out of 30 athletes out of the race, but Swiss skier Sandro Viletta was able to carve out the victory to become the first Swiss to ever win super combined gold. The Olympic super G weekend kicks off Saturday Feb. 15 with the women, while the men race Sunday.
