Erin Hamlin is going back to the luge world championships, this time as a coach.
The two-time world champion and 2014 Olympic bronze medalist from Remsen, New York, will work as a USA Luge assistant coach for two-week stint in January during the world championships in Winterberg, Germany.
It will be her first official foray into coaching with the national team.
Hamlin won four world championship medals during her sliding career. In 2009, she won gold in women's singles on her home track at Lake Placid, New York, and in 2017 at Igls, Austria, she won three medals - gold in the women's sprint, silver in women's singles and silver in the mixed team competition.
She retired after the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, ending a two-decade career.
