Team USA's Olympic flag bearer will be former bronze medal victor

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.

Hamlin is a four-time Olympian and former olympic bronze medalist.

She will be the fourth luger to serve as the United States flag bearer, and the first since 2010.

While Hamlin is certainly deserving — shell be competing in her fourth and final Olympics at Pyeongchang — her resume pales in comparison.

According to the U.S. Olympic Committee, the coin toss was the pre-determined method of choosing a victor in the event of a tie.

Hamlin is coming off of a banner year in 2017, having taken a world championship in sprint, a silver medal in singles and another silver medal in mixed team.

Hamlin's selection brought warm notice across social media, including from television outlets, elected officials, and the U.S. Olympic team.
