Roger Bannister

British athlete and neurologist
I raced supremely well. I felt I was as well fitted to do it as I had ever been, and as perhaps I might ever be. I went climbing three weeks before, because I was feeling fed up with running.More Roger Bannister quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every time I ran the mile I was aware of my own weakness, there was some opponent who could give me a hell of a fight, so I never went into a race with a sense of invincibility. I always had that feeling of fragility and nerves which made me run faster.More Roger Bannister quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I found longer races boring. I found the mile just perfect.More Roger Bannister quotes [10/10/2011 01:10:11]
The earth seemed to move with me. I found a new source of power and beauty, a source I never knew existed.More Roger Bannister quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whether we athletes liked it or not, the 4-minute mile had become rather like an Everest: a challenge to the human spirit, it was a barrier that seemed to defy all attempts to break it, an irksome reminder that men's striving might be in vain.More Roger Bannister quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
