U.S. Olympic Luger Kate Hansen Dances Her Way to the Top 10 in Sochi

Watch U.S. Olympian luger Kate Hansen warm up for her event by jamming to Beyonce tunes.

U.S. Olympian Kate Hansen is not just debuting her luge talents in Sochi; she's also showing off some sick dance moves.

The 21-year-old ignored the typical pre-event stretch routine and warmed up for her race with a pair of headphones and some beats. In a post-race interview, Hansen revealed that her dance-inducing pre-race playlist consisted exclusively of Beyonce jams.

Although her dance routine failed to impress NBC commentators, her unique pre-event warm-up helped Hansen reach the top 10 in the competition so far. Check out the video above and the GIF below, brought to us by DeadSpin.com, to see Hansen get loose before her event.
