Bode Miller ready to race at world championships

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado (AP) -- Bode Miller says his surgically repaired back is healthy again and he's ready to race at the world championships.

The six-time Olympic medalist hopes to compete in the super-G, downhill and possibly even the super-combined. First, though, U.S. men's coach Sasha Rearick has to pick him for one of the team's spots in each of the events.

Asked if Miller would be in the starting gate for the super-G on Wednesday, Rearick responded," Yes." Same answer when asked about the downhill race Saturday.

It will be Miller's first competitive races of the season.

The 37-year-old Miller underwent surgery in November to fix a herniated disk. He recently took some training runs in Switzerland and Austria.

In regard to his recovery, Miller said, "everything went as well as I could've hoped."
