USA Luge declined comment on the tweet. Hamlin, who won bronze in Sochi, will be leading a contingent of 244 athletes - the most the USA has ever sent to the Winter Games.

Davis also referenced Black History Month which is, of course, the month of February. The luge star became the first US athlete to medal in singles luge since the event's inception in 1964.
Hamlin won the flag bearer honor after she-a bronze medalist at Sochi in 2014 and the first singles luge medalist in U.S. Olympics history-and four-time Olympic medalist in speed skating Davis tied after an athlete vote. She wasn't a shoe-in for flag-bearer, however, The Washington Post reports.
Hamlin's teammates were thrilled by the news, both because of what it will mean for her and what it means for the niche sport of luge. With 244 athletes competing at the 2018 Olympic Games, Hamlin will carry the flag with the largest USA contingent ever. "He added he can "wait until 2022" and included a "#BlackHistoryMonth2018" hashtag.
