    Probably not as well known to many (no one remembers number 2) second man to break 4 min (and broke Bannisters World Record a mere 6 weeks after) Completely contrasting runner to Bannister (strength based from the front) and produced one of the best mile races in history

    Also a man of such character helping a young Ron Clarke mid race
