What an exciting time for U.S.A Luge and New York’s own Erin Hamlin!

The team is coming off a history making victory with Chris Mazdzer’s silver medal and Hamlin is still in contention to medal tomorrow.

After coming off a fifth place finish just a few hours ago, Erin Hamlin lost out on 3rd place by .05 seconds.

Hamlin’s American teammates are further behind in 9th and 15th place. Erin says she she’d be lying to herself if she said she didn’t come here to medal.

Of course, she has already made her mark winning a medal for team U.S.A for the first time in history.

Hamlin also says retirement after PyeongChang just feels right and she’s ready for her next chapter.

Hamlin’s last race is less than 24 hours away.
