Montana Swimmer Claims Olympic Medal in Rio
The world is watching as every nation competes in the Olympic Games. So far Team U.S.A is off to a great start, as we are holding the most medals out of all the other countries. A Montana man contributed to that count recently when Cody Miller took the bronze medal in the 100 breaststroke. That same night, Michael Phelps claimed his 19th career Olympic gold medal.
According to the Billings Gazette
Miller was born in Billings. An article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal said Miller's family moved from the Magic City to Nevada when he was a 10 year old and he started club swimming. Miller grew up in Las Vegas and attended Palo Verde High School, later swimming for Indiana University. He resides in Bloomington, Ind.
