Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has introduced a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives to honor Erin Hamlin.

Tenney says the resolution will ensure Erin's name and achievements are preserved in the U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Record.

"Erin Hamlin broke through barriers for men and women alike in the sport of luge. She put our community on the world stage at four Olympic Games. This resolution will ensure her accomplishments will not be forgotten," said Tenney "Our whole region is proud of Erin's incredible achievements and the leadership and sportsmanship she displayed throughout her career as a Team USA athlete."

The Remsen native is a four-time Olympian and two-time world champion luger.

She was the flag bearer for the United States during the opening ceremonies at the Winter Olympic in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Hamlin has announced that the 2018 games would be her last Olympics.
