Bode Miller expects to retire after one more season of ski racing, he said while attending the Masters, according to The New York Times.
The comment follows Miller previously saying he planned to race next season, if healthy.
“I think I have more to do in the sport,” he told The Associated Press at the World Cup Finals in Switzerland in March. “I definitely am still competitive. If I can keep my body healthy then I think the plan is to race next year.”
Miller, 36, became the oldest Olympic Alpine skiing medalist with his shared bronze in the super-G in Sochi after missing all of 2012-13 following knee surgery. But the season as a whole left him hungry. He’s the most decorated U.S. Olympic skier with six medals over five Winter Games.
He was very disappointed not to win the famed Kitzbuehel downhill in Austria in January and to finish eighth in the Olympic downhill. Miller’s form going into both races suggested he could have won.
Miller also made headlines at the Masters for not being allowed to bring a quesadilla onto the grounds from a hospitality venue at Augusta National.
“If you pay $7,500, you ought to be able to bring out a quesadilla,” Miller said, according to the Augusta Chronicle.
UPDATE: Miller and his wife refuted the story on Twitter:
