Erin Hamlin competes in women's singles luge at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 12, 2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea.

If Erin could top her bronze medal last time, it's only by the honor bestowed upon her this year - leading Team USA into the opening ceremony.

She said the closing ceremony is also an emotional time.

Summer Britcher, who set a track record of 46.132 seconds on this luge course during Monday's runs, finished 19th. But unfortunately, the issue I had on that run was typical out of (curve) nine.

Hamlin recalled there being a couple of trick spots on the Sochi track and thinking that if she "nailed those spots, I would be in pretty good shape".

As the hometown of U.S. Olympian and bronze medal-winning luger Erin Hamlin, the village of Remsen is receiving some recognition from Vice President Mike Pence.

The pageantry and the Parade of Nations is one of the signature moments of the Olympic Games, and Friday night's broadcast will be no different. "That was never something I thought I would accomplish or get the opportunity to do".

She is retiring after these Olympics.

Officials said she had now reached the epitome of being an Olympian.

"Obviously it's really hard to ignore the extra hype around the Olympics, but we try to look ahead to be able to have peak performance at the games", Hamlin said. "I wouldn't be able to do any of that anyways until the spring", she said. "My fiancé is in Minnesota, so it's kind of a bummer that we don't get to be together as much, but that's how our whole relationship has been", she told Us.

Hamlin says she has a lot of decisions to make. And at just 12 years old, she had exactly what they were looking for.
