It was this month last year that USA Luge put out word to other cities that they would consider offers for a new home. On Friday, May 14th CEO Jim Leahy met with his Board of Directors and a decision was made on the fate of the U.S. Olympic headquarters in Lake Placid for the sport of Luge.
Residents of Lake Placid are starting to worry about the fact, USA Luge CEO Jim Leahy, will soon address a board of directors as to whether or not he feels the Olympic training facility in the Adirondacks should remain the team's headquarters. That has been the central spot for all things Luge since it's opening in 1932.
Local Olympian and hero Erin Hamlin is organizing a fund-raising event to battle Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This disease hits close to home for the luge community because one of their own is fighting it right now. Hamlin has started a CrowdRise page to raise money in support of fighting this disease. Erin has even agreed to do something really special if their goal is met!
