After a disastrous Games in 2006, Bode Miller started the 2010 Winter Olympics with a bronze in the men's downhill, setting a record for the most Olympic alpine medals by an American man.
Whistler, British Columbia
It is the third Olympic medal of Miller’s career but his first since 2002, when he won two silver medals – one in the giant slalom and one in the combined.
In between, Miller had a disastrous Olympics in Turin. Though he was favored to win multiple medals, he won none and was criticized for his clashes with US ski officials and his late-night party habits.
