Please drop by this site later this week again to see the photos taken during the event.

An Encounter with Sir Roger Bannister

Carol Teo, our Ex-Captain (2000/2001) is currently studying Mathematics  in Exeter College, Oxford University.  Carol won a bronze for the Girls 100 m and a bronze for the 4 x 100 m relay during the National Inter-Schools Championship in 2001.  She had an encounter with Sir Roger Bannister recently. An alumni of  Exeter College, Sir Roger Bannister was the first man to run the mile in less than 4 minutes.  He did it 50 years ago on 6 May 1954 in a time of 3.59.4.  The breaking of the 4 minute mile was a historic event then as it was thought that to run 4 laps at a 60 s pace was humanly impossible.  With the help of his friends, Chris Brasher and Chris Chataway , Sir Roger Bannister broke the barrier on that eventful day.  To this day, the record has been broken many times and the time has been reduced by about 16 seconds.  The current record is set by Hicham El Guerrouj from Morocco in a time of  3:43.13 in 1999.
