Lomu and Ulmer new Hall of Famers

Rugby phenomenon Jonah Lomu and cycling great Sarah Ulmer are the latest inductees into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame.

They were inducted in the Hall’s segment at the annual Westpac Halberg Awards in Auckland in February.

Both are unmatched in New Zealand sport – Lomu for being rugby’s first global superstar and Ulmer for being New Zealand’s most successful cyclist. She set world records, won a world title and won the Olympic gold medal in the pursuit all in the space of a few weeks in 2004. Lomu, the boy-giant launched onto the rugby world in 1994, played 63 tests until his enforced retirement in 2002. Even after a kidney transplant, he continued to play top-level rugby.
