Before April 1954, the common belief, the universal belief… Because it had been tried again and again and again… And people had failed. The belief was, that man was not physically capable of breaking the 4 minute barrier. That he could not run a mile in less than 4 minutes. That was the disbelief.
Here is what happened ladies and gentlemen. Roger Bannister came along. And he broke the 4 minute barrier. Now here is what is significant about that. Since that time up to this day, over 20 000 people have done it, including high school kids.
