How They Train: Luge with Erin Hamlin

How They Train: Luge with Erin Hamlin

Erin Hamlin won the gold medal at the 2009 FIL World Luge Championships in the women’s singles event. She is not only the first U.S. woman to win the Luge World Championships, but she is also the first woman from outside Germany to stand on top of the podium in a Luge World Championship since 1993. Even more impressive, she broke the lock that the Germans have had on World Cup, Olympic, and World Championship wins since 1997. Taking the event in her home in Lake Placid, she has set the groundwork for another possible upset in Vancouver.
