Women Who Inspire: Olympian Erin Hamlin Gives Back.

Women Who Inspire: Olympian Erin Hamlin Gives Back.

Congratulations are in order for U.S Olympian Erin Hamlin, who made history when she became the first American to win an Olympic medal for the Luge Singles on February 11th 2014. We salute her remarkable accomplishment as she brings home the bronze medal and becomes a positive role model for young girls.

We are even more inspired that Erin Hamlin, together with Citi® is giving back to the program that sparked her journey to becoming a U.S. Olympian. She has teamed up with the USA Luge Slider Search to introduce kids of all backgrounds to the luge sport and to find candidates who have what it takes to become the best in the country and our future Olympic athletes.

  14. I must admit I don't watch the Olympics. But I do appreciate that the Olympics, unlike many other sports, don't require people to push, shove, or injure others to "win." I hadn't heard of the Citi-funded program you have mentioned, and it was interested to read about. I also hadn't heard about Erin Hamlin before, or anything about her story. I'm also guilty of never having heard of the Luge sport, as she mentioned in her video, haha. It must be a very interesting sport to try out, and learn to perfect, considering you basically can't see and yet have to know where to steer! Goodness. Going down a giant, windy water slide was traumatizing enough for me, don't know that I could handle trying out the Luge sport ;)! Thanks for sharing. This was an informative read for me!

  20. An inspiration indeed! Positive role models for the next generation of young women is valuable. Encouraging girls to work hard and follow their dreams is something I hope I can do with my daughter. While I'm a Canadian- and thus a friendly rival ;)- I think the US always sets a great example of encouraging their young citizens to work towards achieving quality goals. Another inspiring story. Thanks for sharing!

  21. She really is an inspiration! Wish we had more positive role models like that. Hopefully our generation of young girls can learn from her and continue it!

  26. I think this is a great opportunity--and I LOVE that we got a medal--go team USA.

    However, I was not very familiar with Luge, so I was directed (after reading your post) to do a little bit of research and Erin seems even more like a Wonder Woman after my research. Thank you for sharing this for the linkup.
