Career Highlights:

Hamlin is making her third consecutive Olympic appearance, having placed 16th in Vancouver in 2010 and 12th in Turin. She will be hard pressed to break the German stranglehold for a medal in women's singles, but was a steady performer on the World Cup circuit this season with eight top-10 finishes in nine starts. Hamlin's best singles finish came in the season-ending event at Sigulda, Latvia, narrowly missing a spot on the podium and placing fourth. That also secured a sixth-place overall finish in the World Cup standings _ securing her status as the top American by edging Kate Hansen. In the team relay, Hamlin has had three top-five finishes in as many starts for the United States in the World Cup season, placing fourth in Igls and Whistler before ending up fifth in Konigssee, Germany.
