Four 4 Minute Mile Roger Bannister Hand Signed Photo sports memorabilia
The Legendary Four 4 Minute Mile Roger Bannister Hand Signed Photo The Venue was the Iffley Road Track Oxford at an event held by the British AAA and Oxford University . It was watched by about 3,000 spectators. With winds up to 25 miles per hour (40 km/h) prior to the event, Bannister had said twice that he favoured not running, to conserve his energy and efforts to break the 4-minute barrier; he would try again at a later date.Conditions improved just before the race was scheduled to begin, and Bannister did run. Two other runners, Brasher and Chataway, acted as pacemakers while completing the race. Both went on to pursue their own track careers. The race commentator was Harold Abrahams. Bannisters time was 359.4. Bannister wrote an interesting memoir in 1955 "the four minute mile"
