Decide which design will be worn by the 2018 Olympic team!
The mantra of luge is to be fast and cool. Jon Wooten nailed it in 2014 when Erin Hamlin, in a Wooten-painted helmet, raced to the first Olympic singles medal in USA Luge history. The three-time Olympian was also the first female in American luge history to stand on an Olympic podium.
Fast for sure and cool to get a medal at the Winter Games.
Now USA Luge is happy to announce that Wooten has gone back to his canvass to work his magic for the fourth time, hoping more Americans will step on the medal stand February in Pyeongchang, South Korea, sporting his creation with 2018 Olympic hardware beneath it.
This is your chance to help choose which helmet Team USA will wear during the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Cast your vote below for the Stars, Stripes and Liberty design or the All-American Racer design.
The contest will conclude at midnight on July 4th, 2017. The helmets will be unveiled and presented to the 2018 Olympic Luge Team in Lake Placid, N.Y. during a press event at the conclusion of the World Cup event on December 16, to be broadcast live on usaluge.org.
