Olympic bronze medalist Erin Hamlin is back in action this week, preparing for the World Cup this weekend in Lake Placid and for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea in February.

The 30-year-old Remsen native is 10th overall in the standings. She’s looking to defend her Olympic title in PyeongChang.


"Winning a medal in Sochi was definitely the highlight of pretty much everything in my life. But I think just personally, it really kind of showed me that decisions I've made over the years and sacrifices I've made over the years, and sacrifices I've made and just pouring everything into the sport, has been 110 percent worth it,” Hamlin said. “I never questioned it before, but it just kind of solidified that. But also just kind of like proved to myself that I can compete and end up on top and end up as one of the best in the world. And being able to do that for the first time for our team and for our sport in the U.S., it means a lot because it kind of opens that door, it kind of breaks down that barrier."

NEWSChannel 2’s Alicia Daddario is headed to Lake Placid for the World Cup event this weekend. She will have a report Friday night for Sports Express and on Saturday following the competition.
