SYRACUSE - Local Olympian Erin Hamlin is back on U.S. soil after her fourth Olympic tour.

After several long plane rides, Erin touched down in Syracuse Tuesday morning.

Erin’s been competing in the luge long before taking a bronze medal in 2014. She was the first female to win a world championship and the first American to win an Olympic luge singles medal.

She took one gold and two silvers at the world championships in Austria, and she won her bronze medal in Sochi.

While she didn’t take home a medal in this year’s Olympic luge competition, she still finished in the top ten.

We caught up with Erin at Hancock International Airport for her homecoming and to see what she’s planning to do next.

"I am going to sleep a little bit. Hopefully get some R&R in. Maybe go on vacation somewhere warm. I’m not sure yet, but then get wedding planning. I’m getting married in July, so that’s next on the list, so it’s a busy year."

We asked Erin’s father how proud he is of her accomplishments, and he said "on a scale of 1-10, he’d give it a 12."
