Footnotes

  • Event 9 - the One Mile - having a recorded time of 3 minuntes 59.4 seconds, a world record at the time. Roger Bannister was the first person to run a mile in under 4 minutes.

    Provenance: the vendor is the nephew of the former British Athletic team manager Leslie Truelove. Mr. Truelove was in charge of the A.A.A. team when Roger Bannister achieved his world record at Oxford in 1954, and it was into his arms that Bannister stumbled after his heroic effort.
