Luge star Hamlin reflects on Olympic journey

Luge racer Erin Hamlin will carry the U.S. flag in the 2018 Olympic Opening Ceremony the U.S. Olympic committee announced Wednesday

Jody also credits Hamlin for creating friendships on Team USA's women's luge competitors. She was a gymnast at the time and couldn't get enough of the U.S. Women's Team - The Magnificent Seven as they came to be known.

Her teammate Emily Sweeney crashed on her final run and after several minutes of being attended to by medical personnel was helped off the track.

After a disappointing first run, Summer Britcher, of Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, set a new track record of 46.132 seconds to move from 15th to ninth. But unfortunately, the issue I had on that run was typical out of (curve) nine.

The German star is now the two-time Olympic champion, after finishing off the historic win at the Pyeongchang Games.

She just happen to have what they. they saw something in her that they were looking for. A tweet posted to Davis' Twitter account said the process by which Hamlin won the honor was executed "dishonorably".
