He’s got four Olympic medals now — talk about a collection!

Though he was narrowly beat out by Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal, skier Bode Miller, 32, did Team USA proud Feb. 19 as he took home the silver medal in the men’s Alpine skiing downhill competition in Vancouver. Aksel raced down the hill in 1 minute 30.34 seconds, which was just 0.28 seconds faster than Bode’s descent. Fellow US skier Andrew Weibrecht, 24, won bronze, finishing just .03 seconds after Bode. “I made a few mistakes,” Bode admitted to the Boston Globe. “I was tired. I couldn’t make my normal moves.” Bode, don’t be so hard on yourself!

This is Bode’s fourth Olympic medal! He won two silver medals during the 2002 games in Salt Lake City, and earlier this week he took home a bronze medal for men’s downhill skiing. Go Bode!
