Erin Hamlin to Compete in 4th and Final Olympics
"4th & final Olympics, here I come," Hamlin posted on Instagram after clinching a spot at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
“I was pre-qualified, but that doesn’t give me a spot on the team,” she told USA Luge. “I felt the pressure and wasn’t comfortable at all. This team is so deep right now and I had to get that spot; there definitely were no handouts. I’m glad I got it.”
Hamlin made her Olympic debut in 2006 and became the first U.S woman to win a world title three years later on her home track in Lake Placid, New York. She went on to two more Olympic berths, in Vancouver and Sochi, where she brought home a bronze medal.
Hamlin will retire following this season.
