Hamlin is from the Utica area and has said this Olympics would be her last.

As she enters retirement, she can look back on a career filled with success.

Hamlin made history four years ago when she won bronze, becoming the first American woman to win a medal in Olympic Luge and the first American to medal in a singles event.
