Bode Miller becoming horse trainer; doesn't plan to be in Olympics again
Five-time Olympian Bode Miller is making the transition to a new high-speed sport, although he will now be watching from the sidelines.
“I’m going to Baltimore and then to Lexington to kinda finalize the last steps of buying a horse property there that has the training facility that I want, and do some modifications. It’s what I’ve wanted to do for a long time.”
Miller's mentor will be legendary horse trainer Bob Baffert, who has been a long-time fan of Miller's skiing, even naming one of his children Bode before he had even met the most accomplished male skier in U.S. history.
The 36-year-old Miller added that while he is not completely done with skiing at this point, he does not anticipate competing in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.
