U.S. Olympic skier Bode Miller took the bronze medal in yesterday's downhill Super-G event, but broke down in tears in an interview following the event.
Miller was competing with a heavy heart after the sudden loss of his brother last April. The emotions poured out while being interviewed by NBC's Christen Cooper, who continued to pepper him with questions about his brother and the emotional toll it's taken on him during the Olympics. Miller eventually stopped the interview, went down to his knees and covered his face as he sobbed.
Cooper immediately received criticism for pushing Miller too much on the death of his brother and has taken a lot of heat for it. But on the Today show this morning (Monday), Miller says Cooper was just doing her job and doesn't deserve the criticism.
