The winds dropped, his teammates paced him, and Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile.

Norris McWhirter, co-founder of the Guinness Book of Records, made the announcement at the track.

Long afterwards, Bannister wrote about that run, "No longer conscious of my movement, I discovered a new unity with nature. I had found a new source of power and beauty, a source I never dreamt existed."

He spent the next fifty years treating patients and making contributions to neurology.

What a guy.
