  • pre-Bannister, even pre-Victorian sub-4s?

    as there is no search feature on these forums its hard to know when something has already been discussed. anyway, does anybody have any thoughts on this Peter Radford article?:

    and a followup:

    See the thread '18th century Distance Running'.

    I am glad to see that Mel Watman has some sense in this matter.

    The original article by Radford, who should know better, is nonsense.

      Yes, as we've suggested on the other thread, this is nonsense on stilts. If this is true, then pigs have been flying for eons.
