The finish line might as well have been a million miles away, so slim were her chances of crossing it. She’d just ripped through a fast flush and was two gates away from the electronic beam when, as sometimes happens when you give it your all, she got wide of the next gate, body going one way, skis the other and only a miracle could keep her from falling.
Bode Miller, the go-it-alone typhoon, who split from the U.S. Ski Team last spring with both sides citing irreconcilable differences, scored a victory for independence Thursday when a 12th-place finish in super giant slalom clinched his second overall title at the World Cup Finals in Bormio, Italy.Print This Post
