Still one of the legendary performances in track and field history.

thanks for the link Ryan. Almost 3 times more humans have climbed Mt Everest than have run sub 4 in the same amount of time. I'd argue it takes more talent to run 1760 yards in less than 240 seconds than to climb 29,000 feet.

I'm glad you liked it. I actually don't know how many times I watched that race this past weekend looking for the best video. Between showing the whole race with no interruption, the quality of the video and especially the commentary, this was the easy winner.

I've seen that comparison quite a few times over the past week. I would agree that the 4 minute mile is harder than climbing Everest. Both are amazing challenges but the numbers speak for themselves.
