Absolutely is a great, I'm very into my running and whilst his 4 minute record has been beaten by some distance today to be the first person to run sub 4 minutes is a remarkable achievement, no woman infact has managed it still some 64 years afterwards.

A great athlete who broke the sub 4 minute mile in 1954. I was about 15 and at school in 1959 and used to run the mile around 4 laps of the track. I think that the school record holder did it in about 4 minutes 50 seconds which was well behind the record set by Sir Roger. May he rest in Peace.
