Bode Miller tweaks knee in first run of giant slalom, Sochi Games come to end
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Bode Miller will skip the last Alpine race at the Sochi Olympics, the slalom, after tweaking his surgically repaired left knee during Wednesday's giant slalom.
Miller finished 20th in the giant slalom with a two-run time of 2 minutes, 47.82 seconds, more than 2½ seconds slower than gold medalist Ted Ligety. Given that he'll be 40 during the 2018 Winter Games, the GS might have been Miller's last Olympic race.

Miller owns a U.S.-record six Olympic Alpine medals, including a bronze in the super-G last weekend that made him the oldest ski racer to win a Winter Games medal. He said Wednesday that his knee bothered him after that race, and it's been swollen during the Sochi Olympics.
He missed all of last season while coming back from a knee operation.
