Erin Mullady Hamlin (born 19 November 1986) is a three-time Olympian and the first female American luger to medal at any Winter Olympics, as well as the first American of either gender to medal in singles competition. She took the singles bronze medal in Sochi’s 2014 Winter Olympics, something the Associated Press called “a feat that will surely go down as perhaps the greatest moment in USA Luge history”.
