But it was not the first time when Miller lost his family member. 5 years ago, his brother Chelone died after a motorcycle accident. The young man spent 11 days in a coma. Doctors were fighting for his life, but unfortunately, Chelone couldn’t make it. He died at 29.

Tribute to the beloved brother

While still grieving his brother, Miller didn’t refuse to participate at the Winter Olympics. He said he did it in memory of late Chelone.

Bode explained he just wanted to turn his grief into inspiration. His brother would like him to do this.

I probably prefer just to mourn and be normal about it and treat my Olympics the way that it’s meant to be treated.

Bode Miller is a person with an incredible inner strength. We hope he’ll find a motivation to battle his grief amid the daughter’s loss, at least for the sake of his family. We keep praying for all of them.
