REMSEN, NY - 4-time Olympian Erin Hamlin returned home to a hero’s welcome Saturday.

Fans young and old lined Main Street in Remsen to welcome their Olympic hero home with a parade.

They waved flags and held homemade signs that read Go Erin and Good Job Erin.

There was also a few Team USA hats to be seen as family and friends waited anxiously to catch a glimpse of Erin as she passed by.

Following the parade everyone gathered at the Remsen High School to honor her.

Prior to the Olympics she announced that she would be retiring.

"I think it's sunk in that I'm done. I kept waiting through this entire season to have moments where it was like ‘oh yeah this is it, this is the last time I'm here, this will be the last time I'll be doing this’, but it never really felt like it was a bad thing or I really never got emotional about it. So to me that told me that it was the right time and it was really great to end my career on my terms. Not every athlete gets that."

So what’s next for Erin?

Right now she says she’s looking forward to spending time with her family and making wedding plans.

As for the future, she says she’s keeping her options open, but would like to work in the sports world to some extent.
