Bode Miller is the most decorated Olympic alpine skier in the history of the United States. At the Sochi Games, Miller recently earned a bronze medal in the men's Super-G. After clinching that medal, Miller spoke with NBC's Christin Cooper and mentioned that he had a lot on his mind at the Sochi Games, especially in the wake of his brother's death last year.

Miller's brother, Chelone, died of a seizure in 2013. Cooper pressed Miller to elaborate on his feelings and qualify his performance in terms of what it meant for him and what he hoped it meant for his late brother. Miller broke down in the interview and has since come out to defend Cooper's line of questioning during their conversation.
