The US Army's Emmanuel Bor Becomes 500th American to Break 4:00 in the Mile as Shadrack Kipchirchir (3:55) Holds Off Justyn Knight for the Win in Boston

Today, 60 years, seven months, and 26 days after Don Bowden first ran 3:58.7, Emmanuel Bor became the 500th American to break 4:00 with an eerily similar time - 3:58.77. Despite the sub-4:00 club's expanding membership, it remains a rare feat. Five hundred people (actually 501; Western Oregon's David Ribich joined the club three hours later) in a country of over 320 million represents an exceedingly small number. For comparison, there are more billionaires in the country (540 as of 2016) than sub-4:00 milers.
