Updated 7 years ago

Olympic medalist and former World Cup
champion Bode Miller is leaving the U-S ski team.
Miller told men’s coach Phil McNichol of his decision following
a meeting at the headquarters of the U-S Ski and Snowboard

association and there had been rumblings that he would leave the
team for several years.
He has been a part of the U-S team for 11 years, but will travel
and train independently if he competes in the 2008 World Cup
season.
