Happy Birthday Four-Minute mile!

Sir Roger Bannister was the first man to break the 4:00 mile, running 3:59.4 in Oxford, England on May 6, 1954. For more about the legendary Bannister, I highly recommend The Perfect Mile by Neal Bascomb, an amazing account of Bannister, John Landy and Wes Santee, who were all pursuing the seemingly impossible barrier. Bannister's memoir The Four-Minute Mile is also an excellent read.
