After the race, Miller told Australia's Channel 7, "I don't know what happened. My legs started to get a little heavy and I was telling myself that I wanted it so bad and I just did whatever it took. Now I'm coming home with a gold medal, so it is such an amazing feeling for me."

"I'm so thankful to God to be able to bring home the gold medal for my country. It is such an amazing feeling."
