NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bode Miller skipped the Olympics closing ceremony and cheered on the Dwight School Lions boys varsity basketball team as they won the championship title against Leman Manhattan Prep on their new home court at the Dwight School Athletic Center in East Harlem.

Mr. Miller, a long-time Dwight School and ICL Champion, staunchly believes in Dwight's educational philosophy of "igniting the spark of genius" in every child. He said, "Dwight instills the same sense of passion, perseverance, teamwork, and leadership skills in student-athletes that I needed to become an Olympic champion."
