An exceptional item of signed Athletics memorabilia celebrates Sir Roger Bannister’s historic 4 minute mile. This historic event took place on May 6, 1954 during a meet between British AAA and Oxford University at Iffley Road Track in Oxford. It was watched by about 3,000 spectators. With winds up to 25 miles per hour prior to the event, Bannister had said twice that he favoured not running to conserve his energy and break the 4-minute barrier at another meet. However, the winds dropped just before the race was scheduled to begin and Bannister did run. His time was 3 min 59.4 s. This superb limited edition piece contains a stunning 16” by 20” photo of Sir Roger crossing the line. It is personally signed by Bannister and supplied with a separate photo of Sir Roger signing in October 2008. There is a plaque with detailed information of the famous run and each print is individually numbered out of 200.
