Bode Miller Biography

Professional alpine skier and five-time Olympic medalist
Pro to the question "Should Performance-Enhancing Drugs Be Accepted in Sports?"

“What do you call aspirin? What do you call Creatine? What do you call vitamin C? Those are all the same thing. It’s not any different than anything else. I don’t know why everybody takes issue with [steroids].
