About Roger Bannister

Roger Bannister was a middle distance athlete who ran the first sub 4 minute mile on the 6th of May 1954. His time was 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. Bannister's record lasted just 46 days. The 50p coin minted 50 years later in 2004 was to celebrate his achievement and shows the running legs of an athlete in front of a stopwatch with the watch hands stopped just short of 4 minutes.
