Sir Roger Bannister framed presentation

Item Number:  1407-1

An great item of Athletics memorabilia celebrates Sir Roger Bannister’s historic 4 minute mile.

This historic event took place on May 6, 1954 during a meet between British AAA and Oxford University at Iffley Road Track in Oxford. It was watched by about 3,000 spectators. With winds up to 25 miles per hour prior to the event, Bannister had said twice that he favoured not running to conserve his energy and break the 4-minute barrier at another meet.

However, the winds dropped just before the race was scheduled to begin and Bannister did run. His time was 3 min 59.4 s.

This superb special edition piece contains a stunning 12” by 8” photo of Sir Roger crossing the line. It is presented in a quality black frame with mounts and a plaque that reads.

Sir Roger Bannister CBE - The first man to run the mile in less than 4 minutes. This historic event took place on 6 May 1954 in Oxford. It was watched by 3,000 spectators who witnessed Bannister set a new World Record time of 3 min 59.4 seconds. - Special Edition.

Measures in at an impressive 44cm by 38cm (approx).

A magnificent item of Sir Roger Bannister memorabilia that would grace any location and make a great gift.
