American cyclist Sarah Hammer has been honoured by the US Olympic Committee, with the track racer named as one of its 'Athletes of the Month' for April.

The Californian successfully defended her world title in the women's three-kilometre individual pursuit at the 2007 UCI Track World Championships in April, leading to the organisation's recognition. Hammer's back-to-back world titles is the first such achievement by an American woman on the track in over 20 years.
