American Bode Miller broke down at the finish line of the men's Super G on Sunday.

The most decorated alpine skier in U.S. history, Miller provided an emotional moment after winning a bronze medal in the event, increasing his career medal total to six and providing viewers with possibly the most heart-wrenching story of this Olympic Games.

Miller spent time since the 2010 Torino Olympics dealing with a high-profile custody battle and grieving after the death of his brother Chelone Miller, who had hoped to make the Olympic snowboard team before suffering a fatal seizure last year.

On top of the tragedy, Miller suffered a serious knee injury in 2012, causing him to contemplate retirement. After his knee responded well to physical therapy, though, America's most decorated alpine skier returned to compete at Sochi with his brother's death still weighing heavily on his mind.

With the third-place finish, Miller became the oldest alpine skier to win an Olympic medal and the first American skier to medal in three different games. 

Alongside Miller, American Andrew Weibrecht finished in second place in the event, giving the American team, who had claimed just one medal before Sunday's Super G, a significant lift as it heads into the slalom events.

Here is what Twitter is saying about Miller and his emotional reaction to his medal-winning performance during the Super-G:
