Erin Hamlin isn't the only central New Yorker at the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang. Maddie Phaneuf of Old Forge makes her Olympic debut in the 15K individual biathlon on Valentine's Day. "Tune in at 6am EST Wednesday for the 15km Individual," Maddie shared on Instagram.

The support for both Hamlin and Phaneuf is everywhere you look in central New York. Students in Phaneuf's hometown of Old Forge made her a giant card. Banners hang over Route 12 in Barneveld and fans even created a video wishing Phaneuf good luck.
