Bode Miller, Ted Ligety go out early in Olympic men's slalom

February 27, 2010 | 10:38 am

Olyblog Bode Miller's Olympics are over -- and he won't win a fourth medal. Miller missed a gate barely 10 seconds into his morning run of slalom and was disqualified. Miller, skiing No. 17 on a sloppy course, went out right after U.S. teammate Ted Ligety failed to finish his run.

Miller leaves the Olympics with an American record of three Alpine medals. He won the gold in supercombined, the silver in Super G and the bronze in downhill.
