I have been competing in the sport of #luge for 17 years. I have competed in three Olympic Games. I I have given my whole life to this sport and by doing this I have sacrificed time with family and friends and have missed out on many ‘normal’ experiences others get to have. That being said, I would do this all again. I have trained with, and get to call some of the greatest athletes friends. I have traveled to many countries, experienced completely different cultures other than my own and know I have plenty of friends and couches to sleep on in many countries. Thank you to everyone who has cheered me on, supported me, and celebrated with me. The Olympic rings bring everyone together for one common goal and I’m so honored to represent #teamUSA today on #OlympicDay and every day.
