SOELDEN, Austria (AP) -- Bode Miller is back on the World Cup circuit and the cameras were flashing when the American showed up at a sponsor's event to preview the Olympic ski season.

Miller returns after a year off to recover from knee surgery. He says his knee feels better than it has since 2001.

He'll compete Sunday in the World Cup giant slalom on Rettenbach glacier in Soelden, Austria.

On Thursday, he left the stage and moved to the back of the room to greet his wife, pro volleyball player Morgan Miller, and attend to his baby boy.
