Andrew Weibrecht of upstate New York might have shocked the world with a silver medal Sunday after a kamikaze run down the Olympic men’s super G race course, but it was his teammate Bode Miller who made history with a bronze medal finish.“Everything felt pretty raw and connected,” said Miller, who at 36 became the oldest Olympic medalist in Alpine skiing history. The oft-troubled Miller might have collected gold if it weren’t for a mistake on the lower section of the course.Weibrecht initially thought the melting snow would hinder his late start position, but then he got a radio report from Miller, who was already at the finish line and told him to “f---ing pipe it” according to U.S. Ski Team coach Forest Carey.  Weibrecht's spectacular run knocked Miller into third place.Kjetil Jansrud of Norway, who completed the course in 1 minute, 18.14 seconds, took home the gold.Miller, who tied for bronze with Canada’s Jan Hudec, extended his American record to six career Olympic medals in Alpine
PLAYERS: Bode Miller
