bode miller wins gold

Bode Miller became the face of the U.S. Olympic Team in Vancouver Sunday with a comeback performance in the men's Super Combined that will be replayed in Olympic highlights for years to come.

He won his first Olympic Gold medal in the Men's Super Combined with a combined (slalom and downhill) time of 2:44.92. Ivica Kostelic of Croatia won the Silver medal with a time of 2:45.25 and Silvan Zurbriggen of Switzerland earned Bronze.

"When I passed the line, I did my normal thing and stood for a second and I was like 'That was unbelievable, I can't ask for anything more,'" Miller said. "For my first Olympic gold, it was absolutely perfect."

As the crowd of more than 6,000 screamed for him, Mr. Miller waved his poles and basked in adoration that no one would have expected four years ago after the Turin Games. Then he was the angry, bad-boy of Team U.S.A., who criticized Olympic commercialism and boasted of his partying before races.

Also racing for the U.S., Ted Ligety was 5th, Will Brandenburg came in 10th, and Andrew Weibrecht was 11th. Norway's Aksel Svindal, winner of the Gold in the Super G, did not finish.
