LILLEHAMMER, Norway (AP) Erin Hamlin's quest for another Olympic medal is officially underway.

The 2014 Olympic bronze medalist was part of a USA Luge contingent that opened on-ice training for the season on Friday in Norway. Hamlin had not been down a track since her medal-clinching final run in February at the Sochi Games.

Many international teams are in Norway to take advantage of early season ice. USA Luge's home base in Lake Placid, New York, is not scheduled to open for sliding until Oct. 18.

The American contingent plans to train in Norway until Oct. 12. It is scheduled to compete in the Lillehammer Cup on Oct. 11, a preseason race before the start of the World Cup schedule.
