In June 2018 a normal day for the Millers ended in tragedy when their little girl, Emeline, slipped unnoticed out of a back door. The 19-month-old daughter of former Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, subsequently drowned in their neighbor’s swimming pool. And now Morgan has shared her poignant final moments with Emeline – including the heartbreaking promise that she made to her child.
Usually, of course, Bode Miller makes headlines for much more upbeat reasons. He is, after all, the most successful alpine skier in U.S. sporting history. No American has actually won more Olympic medals in the sport than Bode: one gold, two bronze and three silver. And in 2014 he became the oldest skiing medal-winner in Olympic history.
