Alpine skiing superstars Bode Miller and Ted Ligety are used to going head to head.
In December, the Team USA members even finished first and second in a giant slalom World Cup event.
But now Miller's got his sights on his Olympic teammate in a whole new discipline: Twitter followers.
A bunch of snow came down overnight at St. Moritz, Switzerland, putting the kibosh on any sort of Olympic downhill training.
But Miller, a five-time Olympian is not about to let some inclement weather dampen his competitive spirit.
Especially not right before the Sochi Winter Games.
The 36-year-old still has his head in the game.
So he's taken on this new challenge:
As of press time, Miller's clocked in 35,331 followers to Ted Ligety's 41,651.
Will he overtake his fellow Team USA member to come up with the Twitter gold?
