Bode Miller, men's downhill
U.S. skier Bode Miller finished in first place in the first downhill training run, clocking in at 2 minutes, 7.75 seconds. The 36-year-old Miller is already the most decorated skier in U.S. Olympic history with a total of five medals. If Miller is going to add to his trophy case, he will need to conquer Sochi's Rosa Khutar, a course where he suffered a serious knee injury back in 2012.
