Krasnaya Polyana, Russia (NEWS CENTER) -It took Bode Miller three tries, but he finally has his first medal at the Sochi games. As a result, the 36-year old is now the oldest competitor to ever win an alpine skiing medal.

The Carrabassett Valley Academy alum won the bronze in Sunday's Super-G with a time of 1 minute 18.67 seconds.

American Andrew Weibrecht won silver while Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud took the gold.

It's Miller's sixth career Olympic medal in alpine skiing, which ranks 2nd all-time.

That's a feat the New Hampshire native will embrace someday, not Sunday.

"I'm happy to still be kicking around, but you know on days like today it's bittersweet too, because like I said I'm still very close to the top of my game and the skiing that I put down today was less than what I was capable of for sure," Miller said.

Milller honored his performance to his late brother Chelone, who died at the age of 29 from a seizure last April.

The New Hampshire native has two races left in Sochi and more than likely his Olympic career: the Giant Slalom on Wednesday and Slalom next Saturday.
