Bode Miller’s first giant slalom run didn’t go especially well, but it could be because he tweaked his left knee. Now he’s unsure if he’ll go forward with a second run, according to the Associated Press.
That’s the same left knee that required micro-fracture surgery. Miller has admitted that it has bothered him at times in training leading up to the Olympics.
The 36-year-old finished 26th in that first run with a time of 1:23.64, well behind fellow U.S. skier Ted Ligety’s top time.
Miller already holds the record for U.S. Alpine skiers with six medals thanks to his bronze tie in the super-G.
