Miller had one of the earlier runs in the men’s Super G at the Sochi games.
He waited all the way through the next-to-last skier before he was sure he would take home a medal.
He did, becoming the oldest man to ever grab a amedal, this time it was bronze.
Miller lost his brother Chelone to a seizure last year after he suffered a brain injury from an accident.
The reporter who conducted the post-race interview now finds herself in a controversy of comments.
NBC's Christin Cooper asked about Chelone, and Miller answered “with my brother passing away, I really wanted to come back here and race the way he sends it."
Miller became emotional and Cooper followed up with three more questions before Bode bent over on a railing while crying. Cooper touched Miller on the shoulder and the skier walked away from the cameras.
Miller later told The Guardian “it was just some questions and comments about my brother, it was just a lot of emotion."
He also used Twitter to ask people to not blame the reporter. "I appreciate everyone sticking up for me. Please be gentle w christin cooper, it was crazy emotional and not all her fault. #heatofthemoment ... My emotions were very raw, she asked the questions that every interviewer would have, pushing is part of it, she wasnt trying to cause pain."
