who's old enough to remember that on this day May 5th, 1954...

Dr Roger Bannister was the 1st man to run a sub 4 minute mile...

Assuming you got to be around 10 years old to appreciate and remember stuff like this from the news, you would have to be 70 years old to remember this landmark in sports achievement. I willing to bet that only a tiny fraction of the regulars on this board are over 70.

I wasn't even alive for NASA's 1st moon landing.
