Out of the Games

Bode Miller's Run Ends

Bode Miller came to the Vancouver Games seeking to make history by medaling in each of the five alpine events, and to be the first to stand atop four podiums in a single Olympic Games. But he failed to qualify in the Slalom on Saturday, not even making it past the first round. He missed a gate early on, in a run that was made difficult by heavy snowfall. "It's unfortunate to make a mistake so early in the course before you really have a rhythm for it. But that's the way slalom goes," Miller said. Miller, who will ski away with three medals, is still happy with his overall performance. Teammate Ted Ligety also failed to make it past the first round.
