Team USA chose Olympic luge athlete Erin Hamlin to carry the American flag during Friday's Opening Ceremony at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics and her fellow team member is furious. However, Davis, who was also one of the finalists, included the hashtag #BlackHistoryMonth2018 in a tweet. But even with that sort of resume, Hamlin - who is retiring after the Olympics, ending about a two-decade career on her sled - never thought she would be the pick. Apparently, the process to pick the flag bearer was not flawless because it came down to a vote of 8 and there was a 4-4 tie which was decided by a coin flip.
"I am an American and when I won the 1000m in 2010 I became the first American to 2-peat in that event", wrote Davis on Twitter. I remain focused on making speed-skating history, human history, not Black history. She was the first USA athlete to win a medal in singles luge since it has been in the Olympics. She earned a bronze medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, becoming the first US athlete to do so since singles luge began at the Olympics in 1964.
