Skier Bode Miller engaged to volleyball's Morgan Beck

Olympic and world-champion alpine skier Bode Miller today announced his engagement to 25-year-old professional volleyball player and model Morgan Beck on his official Twitter account.

&#';I have found the one! And convinced her to marry me,&#'; he said in his Tweet, which included a photo of a diamond ring.

A later Tweet said, &#';It was a process @MorganEBeck is hard to convince. I'm super excited!&#';

According to the Reuters news service, Beck, 25, planned to move from her home in San Diego to a yacht purchased by Miller, she said on her blog this month.

The 34-year-old New Hampshire native was born in Easton and grew up in Franconia. One of the responses to his engagement Tweet read, &#';Congrats!! Ceremony at Cannon or Kitzbühel ;)?&#';

&#';He learned to ski at Cannon Mountain and he was a member of the Franconia Ski Club,&#'; said Greg Keeler, marketing director for Cannon Mountain and Franconia Notch State Park. &#';He's a Cannon kid.&#';

Miller returns to Cannon every year for Bodefest, a fundraiser for the Turtle Ridge Foundation run by his sister, Kyla Miller, which supports local adaptive sports programs.

&#';He's the hometown hero,&#'; Keeler said. &#';We're happy for him here at Cannon.&#';

Miller, known for his high-risk style of skiing, won the World Cup in 2005 and 2008. He also won two silver medals in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and a gold, silver and bronze in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. A knee injury forced Miller from the World Cup tour in February.

Miller has a 4-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
