Hamlin Finishes Sixth In Women’s Luge Singles
The Olympic career of Remsen's Erin Hamlin came to close today.
Hamlin placed sixth in the women's luge singles competition at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
“I was definitely going for it,” Hamlin told USA Luge.“ I really wanted to end on a good, solid run. The parts that I had issues with from the other runs, I did clean up. But unfortunately, the issue I had on that run was typical out of (curve) nine.
“I have no regrets. I do wish I was able to have four clean runs. I was disappointed in the fourth one. I was not able to capitalize on a really good opportunity. At the end of these races, anything can happen. It’s one of the closest Olympic races I’ve ever been in. It was really exciting and it would have been nice to capitalize on the situation. But I had fun. It was a good experience, and I’m ready to sleep a little bit.”
Hamlin won bronze four years ago in Sochi for the first ever U.S. medal in luge singles.
She announced before the games that this would be her last Olympics.
