Team USA has named their flag bearer for the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in PyeongChang: Erin Hamlin, the first U.S. athlete ever to win an Olympic singles luge medal.

Hamlin, 31, from Remsen, New York, is already a three-time Olympic athlete. She earned a bronze medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, becoming the first U.S. athlete to do so since singles luge began at the Olympics in 1964. She’s also the first U.S. woman to win a world championship in luge.

Asked how it felt to be chosen by her peers to lead the U.S. in the Parade of Nations, Hamlin told NBC, “It was a pretty big shock, but it is an honor and a privilege to be recognized by all of team USA.”

Hamlin will be leading the largest ever U.S. contingent – 244 total athletes – and largest contingent from any nation in Olympic history.

The Opening Ceremony of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang will be broadcast on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
