Remsen's Erin Hamlin is within striking distance of a medal after the first day of competition in the Women's Luge at the Pyeongchang games in South Korea. 

Hamlin's cumulative score in her first two runs on Monday have her sitting in fifth place overall, .236 seconds behind the pace setter, Natalie Geisenberger of Germany - full results.

Geisenberger is the defending Gold Medalist from the 2014 games in Sochi, where Hamlin took Bronze to become the first American to win an Olympic medal in singles luge.

The second half of the women's luge competition will come early Tuesday morning in upstate New York - beginning at 5:30. Will Hamlin bring home a luge medal like her fellow athlete Chris Mazdzer, who became the first American male to medal in the men's single luge? Only time will tell and we'll all be watching to cheer her on.
