Bode Miller began to resuscitate his Olympic image Monday morning, finishing third in the men’s downhill with a time only 0.09 seconds behind the winner, Didier Defago of Switzerland.

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.

Miller’s three Olympic medals are the most ever won by an American man in alpine skiing, surpassing the two – both gold and silver – won by Tommy Moe and Phil Mahre during their Olympic careers.
