Bode Miller Clear For All Alpine Races At Olympics
The International Ski Federation clarified its qualification rules after confusion this week about whether some top racers had achieved enough results.
FIS men’s race director Guenter Hujara says Miller’s status on the injury list throughout last season was taken into consideration.
Miller, who won three medals at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, needed FIS approval to defend his super-combined gold next month.
Hujara says the five-time Olympic medalist is also qualified for giant slalom and slalom.
Miller had already qualified in downhill and super-G, where he won bronze and silver, respectively, four years ago.
The 36-year-old American will compete in World Cup GS and slalom races this weekend.
