Biography

[]

Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister, CBE is a neurologist and former English athlete. He is known for becoming the first person to run a mile in under four minutes. Bannister was born into a middle-class household and has had high ambitions since he was a child. He was a natural runner who aspired to pursue medicine at a prestigious institution in England. He received a scholarship at Oxford, and it was there that he began professional running training. Bannister competed at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki after extensive training and feeling ready to take on the task, setting a British record in the 1500 meters but failing to earn a medal. This episode severely depressed his spirits, and he vowed to stop running. However, he eventually set a new goal for himself: to be the first 4-minute miler. At the age of 25, he created history by breaking the unbreakable record by completing the first three quarter-mile loops in less than three minutes and the last lap in less than a minute during a meet between British AAA and Oxford University in 1954. (3:59:4). Bannister is the Director of London's National Hospital for Nervous Diseases and a trustee-delegate of St. Mary's Hospital Medical School.
