It was a feel-good story for a few hours: Luge veteran Erin Hamlin gets the chance to enter her last Olympics carrying the USA flag into the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Games, winning that distinction after a vote by some of her fellow athletes.
Erin Hamlin waves to the crowd after finishing her second run at Mount Van Hoevenberg during the FIS World Cup tour in December 2016. She's also the fourth luge athlete to carry the US flag into an Olympics.
Shani was one of eight candidates who was up for the honor of carrying the flag during the opening ceremony. Hamlin "won" the coin flip, which resulted in her being named flag bearer.
Speaking before Davis' tweet, Hamlin said her family would be thrilled to watch her carry the flag. "I slide that's what I do.
