A brilliant moment in sports history
The name of Roger Bannister is one of the most famous in the history of sports. In 1954, he became the first to accomplish what had been considered impossible: running the distance of a mile in less than four minutes.
The Four Minute Mile is the compelling story of Roger Bannister and his rivals, the runners who shared his dream and pursued it with unrelenting tenacity. It was a quest for athletic immortality that spanned eight years, three continents and captivated a post-war world avidly seeking new heroes.
