Andy Mill Bio Details
Andy Ray Mill
Date of birth
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
Skier (1974 - 1981)
Sports Commentator (1981 (aft.))
A broken man
During his skiing career, Mill suffered a broken neck, broken back, two broken legs and a broken arm, not to mention having 9 separate knee surgeries. After damaging his ankle during the warm up before the men's downhill at Innsbruck in 1976, he packed his boot with snow in order to numb the injury so that he could still ski.
Mill continues to excel!
After retiring from skiing, Mill took up Tarpon fishing, and has become what Tom Pero, publisher of Fish & Fly Magazine, called "the greatest living tarpon fisherman on the planet". During nine years of competitive fishing, Mill has won more tarpon tournaments than anyone else in the world.
