Bode Miller of the U.S. became the most decorated Alpine skier in U.S. history when he won the bronze medal in the men's downhill on Monday in Vancouver.

The medal gives Miller three. He won silver in the combined and the giant slalom at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.

Didier Defago of Switzerland won the gold and Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway won the silver. 

Defago finished in 1 minute, 54.31 seconds, Svindal of Norway took silver, a slim 0.07 seconds behind, and Miller was 0.09 behind.
