The Roger Bannister Story


 For much of the 20th Century, it was thought there is no way a human being can run a mile under 4 minutes! Medical doctors and health professionals said it was too dangerous. The human body is not designed to go that fast and runners were warned if they tried they could die. So in the 1940 and 50’s for 9 years the world record stood at 4:01 as runners thought maybe the human body had reached it’s limit…until May 6th, 1954 a British runner named Roger Bannister shocked the world running the mile in 3:59.4. The 4 minute barrier for the mile was broken and Roger was just fine. To date over 20,000 runners have run a sub 4 minute mile. Is there something you’re trying to achieve but have been told it’s impossible? Is there a “Roger Bannister Story” for your business?…Is there a Roger Bannister Story for your comeback?
