West chosen to U.S. Olympic luge squad

Ridgefielder Tucker West is heading to Sochi.

On Saturday, the 18-year-old West was selected to the 10-person USA Luge team that will compete in the Winter Olympics in February in Russia. He is now the youngest male to make an American luge olympic team.

West, a three-time USA Luge  start champion, joins Aidan Kelly and Chris Mazdzer on the men’s singles team. The U.S. squad also includes two men’s doubles teams and three female singles competitors.

The U.S. team was finalized after results from a World Cup event in Park City, Utah, on Saturday night.
