Narrator Patrick Lawlor's steady pace and friendly journalistic tone will keep listeners on the edge of their seats with this riveting nonfiction sports story. In 1954, in three corners of the world, three men train to achieve something no human has ever done before: run a mile in under four minutes. Listeners follow American Wes Santee, Australian John Landy, and Englishman Roger Bannister as they train, fail, and try again to break through the seemingly impossible barrier. With no differentiation among the accents of the different runners, the characters are not always easy to identify, but this doesn't take away from the suspense of their race to make sports history.
