Sarah Ulmer
Inducted in 2014
In her time, no one in the world was faster or better at the demanding individual pursuit than Sarah Ulmer.
Sporting Category:
  • Cycling
Over a few golden weeks in 2004, she won at the world championships in Melbourne and at the Olympic Games in Athens, in the process taking more than six seconds off the world record.

Ulmer became the first New Zealander to win an Olympic cycling title and the second to win a world title. Along the way, she won the Commonwealth Games individual pursuit in 1998 and 2002 to go with a collection of other races and titles including two as a junior when she was 18, winning the pursuit and points races within an hour of each other.

No other New Zealand cyclist, female or male, has been as successful.
