Sub-5 History Was Made 66 Years Ago
On this day (29 May) in 1954, in Birmingham UK, Diane Leather, largely unheralded in comparison to Roger Bannister’s sub-4 on 6 May, became the first woman to run the Mile in under 5mins (4:59.6). The women’s Mile didn’t become an official world record event until 1967 😔. pic.twitter.com/M0AJRe5891
