Miller has been using the website to update users about life leading up to and at the games. Last month he shared to Imgur the story of his journey to the games, including his struggle with pectus excavatum, a sunken chest that reduces his lung capacity.

Even before his medal, Imgur users were supporting him.

Especially after Miller mentioned Imgur in his post-race interview.

While Miller doesn't have any more events lined up, he has promised to continue updating Imgur users on his "shenanigans" around the Olympic Village. And of course, he's brought his lobster suit.
