West Islip teen Aidan Kelly competing on U.S. Olympic luge team

A West Islip teen is the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic luge team in Sochi.



Aidan Kelly, 19, made it to the Olympics following only three years of international competition, and expresses humility as to joining his teammates.



"That I can compete with these extremely accomplished and fast older athletes ... the fact I can keep up blows my mind," says Kelly.



When Kelly gets back from Sochi, he intends to get the Olympic rings tattooed on his back.
