It's been a rough Olympic ride for daredevil skier Bode Miller. Heck, it's been a rough year for him. When he was interviewed after tying for the bronze in the super-G competition (and becoming the oldest man to ever medal in an alpine skiing event in the Winter Games), it was beyond uncomfortable to see NBC's Christin Cooper continue questioning him after the tears began. Cooper brought up the recent death of Bode's brother, and his emotions took over. Later Bode graciously defended Christin, saying, "My emotions were very raw. She asked the questions that every interviewer would have; pushing is part of it. She wasn't trying to cause pain."
Citing an ongoing knee injury, Bode pulled out of the giant slolom race, the last alpine skiing event of the games.
