Skier Bode Miller says future hinges on US team
NEW YORK – Bode Miller says what he hears from the U.S. Ski Team will play a big role as he decides whether to retire.
Miller is fresh off winning gold, silver and bronze at the Vancouver Olympics. He says Friday that he will not decide his future until the team’s preseason camp in August.
The 32-year-old Miller says many of the issues that prompted him start his own team two years ago hadn’t changed when he returned to the U.S. team in the run-up to Vancouver.
Although the team has “some good stuff going on,” Miller says when it “comes down to nuts and bolts” the way the team operates has not changed.
He says he powered through his frustration to get to the Olympics.
