(Sochi, Russia) -- Olympic skier Bode Miller says the NBC interviewer who reduced him to tears after a bronze medal win is being judged too harshly. Miller told NBC's "Today Show" he doesn't think Christin Cooper anticipated how he would react when asked about his brother's death. At first Miller teared up, but after more questioning he leaned up against a nearby fence and broke down in sobs. Miller said it was an emotional moment and he feels terrible that Cooper is taking so much criticism. Miller became the oldest skier to win an Olympic medal Sunday at the age of 36.
