Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister, born in 1929, is an English former athlete best known for running the first sub-four minute mile, remarkably while practicing as a junior doctor. This was finally achieved on May 6, 1954 at Iffley Road Track in Oxford, with Chris Chataway and Chris Brasher providing the pacing. The result time was 3 min 59.4 sec. Retiring from running shortly after, Bannister went on to become a distinguished neurologist and an important contributor to research into the human nervous system.
