How Did Bode Miller Make His Money & Wealth
Early Life & Childhood – Miller’s Beginnings
Miller was born in 1977 in Easton, NH (Fun fact, nowadays Easton has a population of just 200 people). He was raised together with his siblings in Franconia, and they were homeschooled until their parents divorced when Miller was in the 3rd grade. Since his childhood, he has been playing tennis and soccer. He started skiing during his school days.
Early Career – Skiing Beginnings
Both his World Cup and Olympic debut happened in 1998 when he was still fairly unknown. During this time, he did not achieve any major results. He kept improving all the way until 2002 when he started gaining mainstream recognition.
That was the year he won his first Olympics medals, two silver ones, in both giant slalom and combined disciplines. In 2003, he was able to climb near the top of the World Cup, finishing second. Next year, however, he won the cup in two disciplines. Finally, in 2005 he won the overall World Cup for the first time. During this time he started making lots of money and increasing his net worth.
Skiing Career – Ups and Downs
2006 was not a good year for Miller. He was a mainstream celebrity at the time, and great things were expected of him at the upcoming Winter Olympics. However, he failed to achieve any significant results, and while he did finish at the 3rd place of the overall World Cup, 06 is considered a low point of his career.
In 2007, he left the US Ski Team. Finally, in 2008 he recovered, won dozens of individual races and had some great final placements. At the end of the season, he was the definite overall champion.
He reunited with the US Team for the 2010 Olympics, where he won 3 medals (1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze), despite previously not training for several months.
Recently Bode has had several decent results, such as his 2014 Olympic silver. But due to the recent injuries and legal disputes, he finally retired in 2017, after making around $8 million.
