RIP Roger Bannister

Recommended Posts

Roger Bannister has passed away at age 88.   Bannister was the first person to run a clocked/verified sub 4 minute mile.

His effort became synonymous with doing things long thought to be impossible.

Sad news. A truly great athlete. However, I must admit to my shame that I was surprised to hear the news as I thought he must have died years ago.
