Miller finished in two minutes and 44.92 seconds Sunday to win the Olympic gold medal in the men's Alpine skiing super combined at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

"I feel great. I was pretty tired afterwards. I was tired after the Downhill and even more after Slalom. It feels awesome," he told a press conference held after competition.

By winning the gold medal, he completed his medal set of three colours at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. He is also the fourth man to win five medals in Alpine skiing at the Olympic Winter Games.

Miller will turn 33 years in this October, asked on whether this is the end of his career, he said : "I don't know, I feel pretty old. I don't know what my plan is."

"I feel good, and when I race like I have here it's so much fun to do. I'd feel pretty stupid to give up if I could continue," he added.

But Miller would like to be a coach for children.

"I like working with young kids and coaching them. I can see that in my future," he said.
