Bode Miller Breaks Down After Winning Medal While Interviewer Asks Him About His Brother

In one of the most emotional moments at the Sochi Olympics, Bode Miller broke down into tears, when an NBC reporter pressed him about his brother Chelone, who passed a way last year at the age of 29-years-old of a seizure.

Bode Miller, 36-years-old had just tied for a bronze medal in the men’s super-G at the Olympics in Sochi, Russia, on Sunday when NBC’s Christin Cooper began to ask him about his brother.

NBC had already established Miller’s quest as an emotional story line, putting a microphone on his wife, Morgan, to hear her reactions to his races, and having the couple sit for an interview with Tom Brokaw.

NBC has since received much criticism for pushing Bode to a point where he would break down into tears during the interview.

Cooper: Bode, such an extraordinary accomplishment, at your age, after a turbulent year, coming back from knee surgery, to get this medal today. Put it in perspective. How much does this mean to you?

Miller: I mean, it’s incredible. I always feel like I’m capable of winning medals, but as we’ve seen this Olympics, it’s not that easy. To be on the podium, this was a really big day for me. Emotionally, I had a lot riding on it. Even though I really didn’t ski my best, I’m just super, super happy.

Cooper: For a guy who says that medals don’t really matter, that they aren’t the thing, you’ve amassed quite a collection. What does this one mean to you in terms of all the others.

Miller: This was a little different. You know with my brother passing away, I really wanted to come back here and race the way he sensed it. This one is different.

Cooper: Bode, you’re showing so much emotion down here, what’s going through your mind?

Miller: Um, I mean, a lot. Obviously just a long struggle coming in here. It’s just a tough year.

Cooper: I know you wanted to be here with Chelly, really experiencing these Games. How much does this mean to you to come up with this great performance for him? And was it for him?

Miller: I don’t know if it’s really for him but I wanted to come here and, I dunno, make myself proud, but … (trails off)

Cooper: When you’re looking up in the sky at the start, we see you there and it looks like you’re talking to somebody. What’s going on there?

At that point, Miller breaks down into tears.

Following the interview, Miller began trending on Twitter, with many people reaching out to him in support.
