Olympian to Visit Red Hawk Elementary in Temecula

Sarah Hammer, who picked up two silver medals at the Velodrome in London this summer, will speak to the students about the benefits of hard work.

Olympic silver medalist and local hero Sarah Hammer will speak to the kids about hard work and perseverance at Tuesday.

The children will hear a talk by Hammer and have a chance to ask her questions, according to school Principal Marc Horton.

Hammer, who was raised at least partly in Temecula and considers herself a Temecula resident, will personify for the kids the benefits of hard work and perseverance, or never giving up.

Horton has a particular connection to Hammer, as her mother was a teacher at Winchester Elementary School while he was the principal.

Hemmer won the silver in the team pursuit event -- the first ever at the Olympics -- and the Omnium, a two-day series of six endurance and sprint events.

The talks will be held during three assemblies at the school, 32045 Camino San Jose.

The times for the assemblies will be 9:05 a.m.; 9:40 a.m. and 10:40 a.m.

On Wednesday, to Paloma Elementary School.
