German becomes 1st woman to win three Olympic luge golds

German becomes 1st woman to win three Olympic luge golds

"As leader of the United States delegation to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, I am proud to join the people in Remsen in honoring your community's own Erin Hamlin of the U.S. Olympic Team in PyeongChang, South Korea", the letter began.

"The opening ceremony will weave together the narratives of five lovable protagonists from Gangwon province through cultural performances", executive producer of the Opening Ceremony Yang Jung-Woong told NBC in January. Her cumulative time was 3:05.232.

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.

Teammate Summer Britcher had set a track record on her second run Monday but had a awful fourth heat and dropped from ninth place to 19th.

"With the amount of time I was ahead of fourth place and how my times had been, crushing a solid run meant I did what I needed to do. And I'm really glad I did".




She has realized a childhood dream, made Olympic history and broken new ground for women in luge.

According to Boylan-Pett, she was the first American to win a medal in Olympic singles luge since it became an official event at the Games in 1964. It was both a relief and a huge moment of excitement. "The [dress] that I got is not something I would have ever imagined that I would pick". "I've always stayed true to what works for me, and that means keeping things consistent. It's a full-time job".

"Kind of [on] a whim just decided that it would be something cool to try", Hamlin said.

And she is getting ready for another big adventure this year.

The large USA contingent is one of the more enthusiastic groups. And at just 12 years old, she had exactly what they were looking for.
