Roger Bannister, first to run mile in under 4 minutes, dies at 88 | New York Post

'Bannister outlived his 4-minute mile pacemakers: Brasher, who founded the London Marathon, died in 2003 at the age of 74. '

'LONDON — Roger Bannister, the first runner to break the 4-minute barrier in the mile, has died. '

'Bannister considered that victory even more satisfying than the first 4-minute mile because it came in a competitive race against his greatest rival. '

'Bannister, who went on to pursue a long and distinguished medical career, had been slowed by Parkinson’s disease in recent years. '

'It was the first time two men had run under 4 minutes in the same race. '
