In early May, 1954, Roger Bannister did what many people thought would kill a person: he broke 4 minutes in the mile for the first time in history. Here's video of that race along with Bannister's commentary (which is awesome).

I got chills when he started his kick with 300 meters left. Amazing race. And great to hear Bannister's poetic thoughts during it.
Racing for time, not for the win. Look at that gap before 2nd place.
