I'm not too sure about Bannister. He was paced by a number of the other runners as part of the attempt to get him inside four minutes. Had it been a genuine race he probably would not have succeeded.
A fair comment, and similar to Kipchoge's sub 2 hour marathon I suppose, but still a pretty incredible achievement.

Watching Roger Hammond win his World Junior CX medal/jersey, in Roundhay Park (Leeds) in Feb 1992

And, afterwards, having him come up to us, as we were standing with parents of two junior squad (brothers) who Hammond had stayed with, for the days before the event

He was good enough to roll his top up for me (scanned from a print)

I was there that day and remember driving 80 miles home in seriously thick fog, did not stop me coming up the next day as well though.


Who can forget 7th May 1994 when DIss Town FA beat Taunton to win the FA Vase Cup at Wembley. Diss was left a ghost town as a 13,450 crowd in London watched the Tangerines come from behind to beat Taunton Town 2-1 after extra time.
I'm not a huge sports fan, but I'll never forget the Headingly test match against the Ozzies back in '81

England were essentially beaten and made to follow on wiith the Ozzies only needing 130 on their 2nd innings

Botham took the first wicket and Bob Willis bowling like a madman got the rest for a total of 111. Willis's figures were 8 for 43. I saw it on TV but wow what a game.

How much does it cost to Oldham?
The sight of the yellow jersey towing the the green Jersey to the win on the champs elysee will stay with me forever.

After that it's Ole spanking the winner against Munich at the Nou Camp in 99.
