Ankle sprain won’t keep Bode Miller down

A popular form of indoor training and fitness for the U.S. Ski Team is volleyball. It’s an intense, high energy game that definitely gets your heart rate up while working a lot of the same muscles utilized while skiing.
Unfortunately, Bode Miller sprained his ankle during one of these volleyball games last weekend, and he couldn’t compete in the giant slalom at Val d’Isere. Fortunately, the ankle sprain won’t keep him down any longer, as he fully expects to compete in all races at Groden/Val Gardena this coming weekend. Today, U.S. coach Sasha Rearick seemed confident: “He’ll race at Groeden”.

We’re not surprised at the confidence in Bode. The man once skied in 136 consecutive World Cup races and has won 31, the U.S. record. Little ankle sprain ain’t keepin him down. No sir.

Good luck to Bode and all the racers this weekend!
