Post Roger Bannister is no more
Wonderful athlete and man.
Ironic that a neurologist should fall to Parkinsons

His famous Iffkey Rd under 4 min mile with Brasher and Chataway always in the memory.

Brasher became an Olympic Gold medalist and founder of London marathon and Chataways White City epic races against the likes of Kuts on black and white TV with a spotlight highlighting the runners on the finishing always in the memory.

Bannisters races against Landy also filed in memory lane.

What an epoch

Without a doubt this was the pinnacle of mid distance racing when Roger ruled the roost.
