Miller crashes, cuts calf in worlds super-G in Beaver Creek
BEAVER CREEK, Colo. (AP) U.S. men's coach Sasha Rearick hopes Bode Miller will still be able to race the downhill at the world championships after his crash.
Rearick said the team is waiting for an evaluation on Miller, who suffered a deep cut on his right calf after a spill during the super-G competition Thursday.
Rearick called it a "nasty crash. A really nasty crash."
The 37-year-old American was competing in his first race since back surgery in November and had a fast run going. He hooked his arm on a gate, spun backward and lost both skis, tumbling down the hill.
Miller slowly got up and waited for someone to bring his skis. He then clicked back in and wrapped up the run.
The men's downhill is Saturday.
