Roger Bannister Breaks 4 Minute Mile
The impossible was now possible.
Today we would like to pay tribute to a moment in running history – the sub 4:00 min mile, by the legendary Roger Bannister. He did what others said couldn’t be done. Doctors predicted that a runner’s heart would explode if he ran a sub 4:00 min mile. Bannister decided to do it anyway. Doing so he correctly predicted that after he broke the momentous benchmark many would break it, many more times after him. He was right. Bannister was a truly amazing athlete and person with an acute intellect.
Do we need more study of the arms in distance running more? It appears Roger Bannister has his hands much higher than normal. Might help increase power by making the lever of the arm shorter. If I read anything on this subject I will certainly share it. 🙂
Make it a great run. 🙂
