Bode Miller became the oldest American to ever win an Olympic skiing medal during the 2014 Winter Olympics, but he won’t be adding to that tally. After tweaking his knee during the men’s giant slalom on Wednesday morning, Miller said that he will be skipping the slalom event and his run in Sochi is now over, according to the Associated Press.

Miller was hoping to bring home a gold in the 2014 Olympic Games, but he should still keep his head high.

If this was the last Olympic appearance of Miller’s career, he still leaves as the most decorated skier in U.S. history.
