Posted By: Emily Bates on February 9, 2014 11:37 am

The final downhill training run on Saturday at the Sochi Olympic venue saw the USA’s Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) take the victory after finishing .66 seconds ahead of Norwegian Aksel Lund Svindal. Miller won the opening training run and was sixth in the second. Travis Ganong (Squaw Valley, CA), Marco Sullivan (Squaw Valley, CA) and Steven Nyman (Sundance, UT), all joined Miller on the men’s downhill team.

“It’s a pleasure for me to ski on this track. I would be angry with myself if I had wasted this opportunity to properly run on this track. It tests your ability to the maximum. The idea is to be unbeatable. I’m going to be ready. I want to win.” – Bode Miller (USA)

The Olympic downhill is scheduled for Sunday February 9th, and can be streamed live on NBCOlympics.comat 2:00 a.m. EST. The event will also be featured on NBC’s prime time Olympic coverage at 7:00 p.m. EST Sunday.
