U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New Hartford, introduced a resolution Tuesday to honor Remsen native Erin Hamlin for her accomplishments on the Olympic stage.

Hamlin, a four-time Olympian and a two-time world champion luger, was the first American to medal in the singles luge event during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. She was Team USA's flag bearer for her last Olympics, the 2018 event in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Tenney said in a statement that the resolution will ensure Hamlin's name and achievements are preserved in the U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Record.

“Erin Hamlin broke through barriers for men and women alike in the sport of luge. She put our community on the world stage at four Olympic Games. This Resolution will ensure her accomplishments will not be forgotten,” Tenney said in a statement. “Our whole region is proud of Erin’s incredible achievements and the leadership and sportsmanship she displayed throughout her career as a Team USA athlete.”
