Sochi: North Country luge slider Erin Hamlin in hunt for medal

In the women's luge competition in Sochi this morning -- evening, local time -- Remsen luge racer Erin Hamlin broke open two amazing sled runs.

She finished the first two runs of the four-run competition with a total time of 1:40.632.

She finished the first run in second place, the second run in third place.

That means she's on track to reach the podium, possibly even snagging gold or silver, if she can maintain the pace tomorrow.
