|Setting the World Record in the Mile, 1957|
If you read our previous posting, you'll have seen a mention of Derek Ibbotson, one of Great Britain's early sub four minute milers and a former World Record holder in that event at 3:57.2. Notably he was also the first person to run a mile in exactly 4 minutes even. Below is a link to the obituary from the The Mirror by Ben Rossington recalling Mr. Ibbotson's career.
