Hammer sets new World record in Individual Pursuit 

Sarah Hammer beat Individual Pursuit record by 2 seconds

Pan American Cycling Championships in Aguascalientes, Mexico on 11 May 2010

Sarah Hammer (Temecula, Calif./American Track Foundation) set an unofficial new world record in the three-kilometer individual pursuit during the qualifying round of the women’s event at the Pan American Cycling Championships in Aguascalientes, Mexico on May 11. Her time of 3:22.269 is more than two seconds faster than the previous record of 3:24.537 set by New Zealand's Sarah Ulmer at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. 

This means the reigning world champion will hold one of only 18 cycling elite world records.  

Hammer went on to win the evening's gold medal final catching Maria Luisa Calle of Columbia in five laps.
