Local girl, Kate Hansen of Team USA, rocks out to Beyonce

Kate Hansen couldn’t be bothered to notice NBC cameras trained on her as she warmed up, dancing to a beat only she could hear while waiting for her turn to luge in Sochi, Russia during the Women’s Luge event. The local, La Canada-Flintridge girl made the nation and NBC wonder what she was listening to on her iPod.

NBC’s Lewis Johnson asked what she was listening to she answered, “ Strictly Beyonce. It’s my girl B. She gets me fierce. I get stoked, and I just have to. I have good mojo goin’ on. So, it’s just how I roll.” She brags on her Twitter, "I know all of Beyonce's choreo by heart and I wear spandex for a living."

The La Canada High School alumna isn't the least bit embarrassed. “I’m in my own world. It doesn’t matter who’s staring. I just dance.” Johnson egged her on saying it was the popping and locking that got his attention. She asked him to drop a beat for her as she vogued.

She may not have won a medal, but she has a winning attitude. The 19-year-old captured the Olympic spirit by saying, “[It’s] an absolute dream. I’m having so much fun! I’m stoked to be here.” She said she was happy to have two pretty clean runs while sliding down the track at 80 miles per hour. Rock on, Kate Hansen.
