Once again, Sarah Hammer proved again that she's my super hero.
Just yesterday she set a world record!! WORLD RECORD!!!! in the 3k pursuit in a nearly humanly impossible time of 3:22.269. I am utterly speechless about this amazing effort - the come back from a serious back injury and the non-stop pursuit of her goal is awe-inspiring.
From her Facebook post:
3:22.269 :) Never really felt pain like that before though. wow...my world went silent for that last kilo...
I wonder if she trains in that silent world? Or is it something special she only dips into for competition? Were there white lights? Did she cross over?
