Bode Miller's unforgettable Winter Olympics is coming to a close. The 36-year-old tweaked his surgically repaired left knee during Wednesday's giant slalom and will not race in the final skiing event in Sochi. He tweeted, "I'm bummed I'm out for the slalom, I wanted a miracle. Thank you all for the amazing support, it's been incredible." Miller missed all of last season following the surgery. Miller became the oldest skier to win a Winter Olympics medal when he took the bronze in the super-G on Sunday. This was also his sixth medal, which is the second-highest total for a male skier and ties speedskater Bonnie Blair as the second most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian in any sport.
