Something you might not know about this past world mile record holder

Aside from perhaps Roger Bannister (a 4:52 high school miler who PRed at 3:59.4) or John Landy (a 4:43.8 kid who eventually went 3:58), you'd be hard pressed to find another 'more improved' miler than Dick Buerkle.

As a Rochester, NY schoolboy, Dick's PB was but 4:28 (and just 10:01 for 2 miles)...yet, he somehow managed to later produce a quite remarkable 3:54.93, to become the unlikliest of all one mile world record holders.
