Bode Miller, 2006 News

world champion skier, apologized for admitting on 60 Minutes in January that he had competed while hung over. While some found his admission upsetting, few were all that surprised. Miller, who grew up in New Hampshire in a home without plumbing or electricity, is considered an iconoclast and the sport's wild child. In the pre-Olympic hype, the media speculated that he might medal in up to five events. He fell far short of expectations, however, and returned home empty-handed.
