Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller has decided to end his season, a week before the World Cup finals in Germany. The American skier ducked out early to rest a sore right ankle, and said he hopes to discuss his future with the United States men's coach Sasha Rearick.

"At some point, I'll sit down with Sasha and see where we're at and what kind of programme we can put together and I'll make a plan from there," Miller said. Miller has not competed since the Vancouver Olympics, where he won the super-combined gold medal and took silver in the super-G and bronze in the downhill. The 32-year-old was not in the running for any World Cup titles.
