Bode Miller tore through the downhill training runs on Rosa Khutor, posting the fastest times on Thursday and Saturday, prompting hope that the 36-year-old skier would claim the sixth Olympic medal of his career — and possibly his second-ever gold.

But he adjusted his approach from his training runs, struggled during the middle section of the course and finished eighth.

And if you didn’t think anyone was awake, watching an online stream at 3 am ET, well, you’d be wrong.

Some tweeted upbeat messages.

And this tweet probably helped a bit.

Miller still has more chances for gold, most likely in Friday’s super combined.
