Sarah Ulmer Medal Ceremony, Athens 2004

In the final against Dutch legend Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel, Ulmer trailed by a second after 1000m. After that she was remorselessly efficient. When she was done, she had recorded 3min 24.537s and had won by a staggering 3.113s, this in a sport that is measured in thousandths of a second.
