Meet Team USA's 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony Flag Bearer Erin Hamlin

Luger Erin Hamlin has been named Team USA's flag bearer for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Team members voted. When that vote ended in a tie, the choice was left to a coin toss, according to reports.

"I am an American and when I won the 1000m in 2010 I became the first American to 2-peat in that event", Shani tweeted. "I can't wait to share it with them all!"

In a historic win at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Hamlin scored a bronze medal in the singles luge heat, a first for any US competitor since the sport's addition to the games.

Hamlin and Davis were among eight athletes being considered to carry the flag in the opening ceremony, ESPN reported.
