“It’s cool because that’s how I got into the sport, and now I’ve come full circle as a medalist,” she said. “To be able to give money to the program, I’m really pumped about it.”
Hamlin had planned to stick around Sochi for a while but will leave shortly, before the Olympics’ end. She has had a lot of support from home and is looking forward to returning.
“I’ve been getting pictures, text messages, videos. I think it’s kind of been a continuous celebration,” Hamlin said.
“I’m really excited to get back and share this with everybody and celebrate with them.”
