Chataway 2nd, 2nd, and 2nd!

Postby portsea57 » Sat Mar 30, 2013 5:24 am

Interestingly, in the first four mile races run under 4 minutes, Chris Chataway came second in three out of the four!
Here's a news clip with Chataway coming second to Tabori in London 1955.
Following that race, there is footage of Hungary's Sandor Iharos ( a fine looking runner) breaking the two mile world record.
Second in that race ( and also breaking the old world record) is England's Ken Wood who was a real talent!
