Bode Miller won a joint bronze medal during the Olympic Alpine skiing men's super-G in Sochi and Miller's fans couldn't be happier. The tough terrain and Bode Miller's difficult struggle made viewers want to support the athlete even more as he tried to achieve his dream of standing on the podium. Amazingly, the athlete came home with the bronze for the super-G and according the ESPN on Sunday became the oldest Alpine skier to medal at age 36.

The race once again was given to Norway as Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super-G gold medal for Norway. It was American Andrew Weibrecht who won the silver and Bode Miller along with Jan Hudec of Canada tied for the bronze.

After his win, Bode Miller took to Twitter to thank his supporters. Many people recognized how hard it’s been for Miller at the Sochi events and there hasn't been any lack of support along the way.

“Thanks for all the support, today was one of the most emotional days of my life. I miss my brother,” tweeted Bode Miller from his official Twitter account shortly after his win on Sunday. The athlete lost his brother last year after a seizure and the mentioning of his loved one online was extremely touching.
