Maplewood's Kim Miller is at work on her fifth Olympic Games
Kim Miller is at work on the 2012 Olympic Games. "I am here with NBC," she explains in an email from London. "It's my 5th Olympics. I've also been to Torino, Beijing and Vancouver and to Nagano with CBS." Miller's behind-the-scenes role means a front-row seat for photos. "I am one of the stage managers for the broadcasts that people see at home," explains Miller. She is posting photos regularly here for those at home to see.

Miller updates her photo log most days; check back often!

I did. After snagging two VIP…
