Libbie Hickman (née Johnson) (born February 17, 1965) is an American former track and field athlete who competed in long-distance running events. Hickman represented the United States at the 2000 Summer Olympics in the 10,000 m.[1]

Hickman is the daughter of an oil company executive and attended high school in Cairo, Egypt.[2] Hickman and Catherine Ndereba had a memorable race at the 2000 Beach to Beacon race; they both finished in the same time, but Hickman celebrated after crossing the "ceremonial tape". Ndereba ran the final step to the official finish line and was awarded the win.[3]
