Bode Miller Wins Olympic Gold for Super-Combined: Vancouver 2010
Bode Miller has won a gold medal in the Super-combined event for the United States. It was a tall task for Miller, who had placed 7th in the downhill portion of the event, but he made up for it with a lightning-quick slalom leg for a combined total time of 2 minutes, 44.92 seconds.

Miller has also won a silver and bronze medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, and the gold is the cherry on top of a wonderful Games, a far cry from his time in Turin four years ago when he didn't win a single medal.
"I skied with 100 percent heart -- I didn't hold anything back," Miller said. "It's just awesome. There's nothing else to say. The way I executed, the way I skied, is something I'll be proud of the rest of my life."
The gold was Miller's 5th Olympic medal, and he had to beat out Ivica Kostelic of Croatia (silver), who finished 0.33 seconds behind, and Silvan Zurbriggen of Switzerland (bronze), who was 0.40 seconds back.
