4-time Olympian • World Champion • Olympic Bronze Medalist
With an athletic foundation in gymnastics, soccer, and track, Erin was catapulted
into the Olympic pipeline for a sport she never imagined being a part of. At 12 years old the journey began. At 15, Erin began competing internationally on the Junior World Cup tour and by 19 had made her first Olympic team, competing in Torino in 2006.
Erin competed for 13 years on the World Cup tour, never missing a single race. Her
career included 10 World Championships, throughout which she brought home 4
medals (2 gold, 2 silver), 4 Olympics, and 6 National Championship titles. Bringing
home the bronze at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics marked a massive
breakthrough for Americans in her sport, being the first to win a medal of any color
in the singles discipline and first woman to ever win a medal in the sport.
Success on the World Cup tour followed for Erin and her teammates, as records
continued to be broken and medals won throughout the last 4 years of her
competitive career, ending with a total of 23 in world cup races. Erin capped off her Olympic journey with one of her most memorable experiences as flag bearer for
Team USA in PyeongChang.
By breaking barriers and raising the bar for USA Luge, she undoubtedly left her
mark on the sport in the US. With her passion for healthy living, environmental
sustainability, and impacting and inspiring others, she now has her sights set on
leaving her mark on the world in more ways than athletics.
