Roger Bannister was the first man to break the four minute mile. He did it in May, 1954 at a meet in England, I believe with a time of 3:59.4. He was running with others that also had the potential. I guess you could say that the conditions were just right for him to break the record.
46 days. Roger Bannister broke the world record in the mile run by running a 3:59.4 on May 6, 1954. That record was broken on June 21, 1954 when John Landy ran the mile in 3:58.0.
The Olympics does not feature a 4000m distance for running and thus no record exists for it. In fact, Olympic running events jump from the 1500m to the 5000m. In regard to world records, the 4000m is again not recognized. The closest is the 2 mile (3219m) and the 5000m running events.
